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.
