Did she at least "wear approved eye protection"? Then we're good, right? :-+

What did she try to cut, those artificial flowers, they often have a very hard wire in the stem.

Seems like an amazing wife, even if she didn't realize it.  :o  Reason = she gave you the perfect excuse to get that new wonderful pair of automatic strippers you now need.  >:D

Hadn't seen that graph before. I like it.  ;D

You guys need a general toolbox that anyone can grab (mediocre) tools from.

Meanwhile on another forum about floral arrangements, a woman is posting about her husband won't be getting any this decade because of what he just posted about her on an electronics forum.

at the same time you get your wire strippers.

She won't ruin them and they will last forever.

I love mine.
