How It’s Made – Electrical Wire!

Okay, this is WAY too awesome.  Once I started looking through those How It’s Made videos I posted a while ago, I found some new ones.  Check THIS out – how ELECTRICAL WIRE is made!

The insulation and testing parts are my favorite!  The first video wasn’t enough for me, so I found this one to supplement.  Check it out, ridiculously informative – which is what I love!

BURNT TO A CRISP

FOR REFERENCE:

This is what happens when a volunteer stagehand leaves the female connector of a soft rubber cable sitting on the lamp housing of a Source Four body.  Oh, what a joy heat can be!

See the bare conductor?  I’m glad someone asked me “hey, is it okay for these plugs to be all melted and stuff?”
