Collecting copper wire for scrap money has proven to be quite a popular and profitable hobby. Definitely profitable, if you tend to collect enough of it- and collect it safely and legally!

How do you go about stripping your wires to collect the copper portion?  Do you choose a sharp knife? Have you developed your own wire stripping machine or did you go out and purchase one? We were curious so we ventured on to YouTube to see the many different ways scrappers collect their copper.

Here are just a few videos we found on YouTube of different ways to strip wires.
