Product Description

Counting our pennies has become a way of life for most of us over the past few years. With copper prices near all time highs, cashing in your scrap copper can put some much needed cash in your pocket. Approximately 65% of copper produced is used for electrical applications, including cable and wire. When the insulation is stripped, you are left with scrap copper solids. Scrap copper solids are the most sought-after scrap metal in the recycling industry. Because of its conductive properties, copper is often insulated for safety's sake. While the copper has value, the insulation does not. Insulation detracts from the copper's value, which is an important consideration when trying to maximize your return. At the time this was written, insulated scrap copper price was 0.97 per lb while the same wire without the insulation was 2.60 per lb. The HARDIN WS-1270 will easily remove the insulation from most cables and wire allowing you to get premium scrap prices. Independently adjustable blade and rollers allows the HARDIN WS-1270 to accommodate wires ranging from 24 AWG to 7/8" and in any shape including Romex, square, parallel and triangle insulation. Mounting the WS-1270 can be done by clamping the unit to the corner of any workbench or by bolting the stripper directly to the top surface. All the necessary hardware needed to mount the HARDIN WS-1270 in either configuration is included. Operating the HARDIN WS-1270 is as simple as the design. To begin stripping your cable or wire, insert the beginning of the cable into the stripper and through the guide rollers. Adjust the guide rollers to secure and center the cable, adjust the blade to penetrate the outer jacket. After securing the blade, pull the cable or wire through the stripper until the insulation has be been completely stripped. 2 high speed steel replaceable blades are included and can be re-sharpened.

I am very pleased with the Hardin WS-1270 Manual Cable and Wire Stripper.

When it does work it can speed up the process slightly and you don’t have to fiddle around with a knife too much.

If you are considering buy this, Don’t. This is not a good hobby starter. And it really is not for those who have a lot of cable to strip.

First the good;
It is of solid construction. And it is not flimsy.
When it does work it can speed up the process slightly and you don’t have to fiddle around with a knife too much. So you minimize your chance to cut yourself.

Now the Bad;
The cutting pin is strong but not very deep or sharp so you will have to constantly change and adjust the pin position depending on the thickness of the plastic. And if its double layered which any worthwhile copper cable is then you have to do the process twice. Supper west of your time and effort.
And forget about it if you have anything with a 1.5CM or higher diameter the designer was extremely short sighted, the three stabilizers need to be further out with longer adjusters. You can adjust in for small cables but not out so a cable like the cable pictured on their adds would fit but you won’t be able to secure it.
You are fiddling and adjusting the tool enough that it does west a lot of time on just setup.
It has a skinny designee and doesn’t feel sturdy when mounted; I wish it had a handle or a bigger footprint.
There is no stabilizing unit to feed the cable so cable will always dangle and give you all kinds of traction issues and through put nightmare. You will hate yourself trying to feed the cables when it is Vertical.

What I had to do is create a feeder system (kind of defeats the purpose of buying the tool)
1. I cut a hole on two wood boards and mounted them aligned on a 2/4 frame so I can pull the cables through boards then pull through the tool for a more stable throughput.

It saved me a lot of time and effort!! For the price it did exactly what I needed it to do. I just wish it would do up to 3/4 inch as it advertised.

the wire doesn't stay in the needle and its just not constructed very well. We returned it for a different one.
