The Best Way to Strip (Wire) - Bar None !,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Automatic Wire Stripper with Cutter (Misc.)
My dad taught me to strip wires when I was a girl. (My husband, bless his soul, taught me how to strip in other ways. Well, he gave me the motivation, at least.)
My dad always used a "gun style" wire stripper - and I took this preference with me when I moved out. My husband had never seen a wire stripper like this one, but he loved it immediately - and imagine how bummed we both were when it got lost - right in the middle of one of my `honey do' projects around the house.
Amazingly, they didn't have this at our local hardware superstore - and the sales guy never even heard of it. They only had one model - and it cost over $25. And it wasn't infinitely adjustable. Give me a break!
Luckily, I found my favorite days later on Amazon - for an amazingly low price - and with free (Amazon Prime) shipping. Halleluiah!!
Using it is very uncomplicated. There's a dial on the back of the `head' which adjust for different thicknesses of wires. Hell, I just keep fiddling with it - until the insulation comes off cleanly. What could be simpler than that?
My last one was red (in color). This one (in yellow) kinda reminds me of a screamin' chicken.
Why should stripping (wire) be any harder - than it needs to be?!! Enjoy.
