    Hi guys:

    I've got an application where I'd like to strip the ends of a ribbon
    cable, insert them through holes in a PCB and solder them in
    permanently. The holes are spaced at the same pitch as the ribbon
    wires. Is there an easy way to strip the ends without using a
    specialty tool?

    go get an inline IDC plug & socket - rather than messing about with
    stripping and soldering - much neater solution.

    when you say they are at the same pitch as the cable, you mean at .05"
    spacing. are these holes in a single row on the board, or dual row?

    ** Depends what YOU call a specialty tool.

    One of these does all sorts of wires & cables plus strips ribbon cable up
    to 10 strands at a go.
