dodo and LIVE electric wire......and fix

Postby arnon » Sat Mar 17, 2007 10:43 pm

Before I start, I would highly recommend not to cut live electrical wire. :) :eek: Not only you can hurt yourself but definitely, you will damage your knife... anyway **** happens and luckily the dodo has no liners so beside loosing some heart beat (thank god not more....) I manage to almost ruin my Dodo. But two hours in the garage with dramel on lowest speed, buffing wheel and steel wool, my Dodo is back to life :cool: :cool:
And I think it looks good. So here is the pic enjoy and don't forget to shut off the electricity before you cut some wires :D :eek: sorry for the pic my camera flash stoped working....

Be well all Arnon

While I love my Spyders, I wouldn't use one to cut electrical wire (or any other kind of wire for that matter, with the possible exception of Cat5) - instead I use regular wirecutter pliers with rubberized grips. Right tool for the right job... and when I'm doing electrical work, I have toolbox with all the necessary tools right there. (I don't do a lot of impromptu electrical work away from home :) )

Nice convex edge, Arnon; I really like it :) . I'll never cut electrical wire with my Spydie... Never...

Pictures after the patch work has been done are good, but I was hoping to see graphic pics of the damage with the fresh black scars and gouging. :)

Too late, sorry :)
It looked like a shark bite with melting s30v on top ;) ;) I had to grind it all for two reasons aesthetic :cool: , and heat treatment damage. But now we all good :cool: I hope I would never have another opportunity to take a picture of that kind of damage.. :)

Be well Arnon

That happended to my dad's impala with fun results...... G10 is a good insulator, a stainless handle would have been bad. :)
The sharper they are the less they hurt when you cut yourself. :spyder:
