Best of both.
Cut along length halfway through.
AKA Brian's way.
Then place in vice and peel back.
AKA Brian's other way.

If you cut away just enough of the outer sheath to grip the inner wires in a vice you can then pull the outer sheath and the inner wires cut through the outer sheath as you pull. I use this method when I need single strands of inner wire. The outer sheath will not have a smooth line as a blade would make but once fitted glued and painted you don't see it.

Thank you for the link Mark - wish I'd seen it earlier, I've glued the capping on now.

Never mind, it'll be a while before my next update - computer issues again - I'm using SWMBO'S laptop at the moment.

(for some reason Youtube is just showing a solid green screen when I try to view the video clips :(()


Regards,

Ray.
