    What do you guys do with the wire you have left over from the jobs? IS there a easy way to skin the wire?

    If you are wanting to scrap it, the best thing to do is to burn the coating off. I give my scrap wire to a local deaf/mute guy who scraps it out.

    We usually take it to the recycle yard....we don't take the coating off though. In the past couple of years we get anywhere from $400-$600 for it.

    so far pile it up in the barn. I usually take a handful of small pieces on jobs as they come in handy sometimes.

    Used some scrap 16ga to rewire the bilge pumps in the boat. Some for a friends stero system... not much else to do with it besides scrap it
