Why hold the wire with pliers when its outside the box, hold it with one hand while stripping with the other.
However, this could have been cut off 'just a little too short', and, when they stripped it, some of it went back into the conduit, so they grabbed it with their Kleins, pulling it back out. That would leave marks like that in those locations.
I still like the black and red phase tape idea to hide this. Hmmmmm ... why is there black phase tape on a black wire? Guess the electrician just was not thinking and just taped everything. Now, I gotta think again. What is under that black tape on that black wire? Why tape it the same color? Hmmmmmm ... ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
