Answered: Stripping Wires

Quick question: Is stripping wires allowed?

Legal wiring modifications can be found in R15a, quoted here for reference and bolded for emphasis:

When repairing a cable, some stripping may be necessary to solder or interface with twist/crimp connectors. This is normal and expected. However, simply having exposed stripped wires would not be legal. The final ruling will be made by the inspector and/or head referee at your event.
