Question Cutting Wires

Is there a machine or tool that is used to cut electrical wires on an angle over a length of 2-3''?

I'm thinking some sort of jig would be the best way to do this? I'd be looking for a consistent cut, every single time.

Has anyone tried to do this before?

Nothing comes right to mind... but if I may ask, what is the purpose?
