Anyone doing wiring or repairs in confined spaces would find this useful.
I have 2 other Knipex cutting tools and they are excellent. I rate their side cutters much higher than the Snap-on ones I have used.
I needed to reach into two dozen electrical outlet boxes and strip some short 14AWG wires that are copper clad aluminum. Very important not to nick or "ring" the wire, because aluminum tends to be brittle and nicking it creates a very definite weak spot. Gouging or nicking through the copper cladding creates a place for the aluminum to corrode and later break.
I adjusted the jaw opening using sample wire and experimented with stripping.
First thing I noticed is that when you adjust the strip opening with the wire going straight into the tool, the adjuster is very sensitive - a small rotation of the adjusting wheel causes a big change in the jaw opening. You quickly go from not cutting through the insulation to cutting into the wire itself.
Second thing I noticed is that after you make the adjustment, the angle of the wire into the jaw during the stripping process must be maintained very precisely. If you angle the wire into the tool a few degrees in one direction, the cutter becomes loose and will not cut the insulation. Angled a bit the other way and the tool will grab, gouge and nick the wire. I tried it a few times in actual practice and gave up very quickly.
From one wire to the next, sometimes this tool would not strip and other times it would gouge the wire. I tried closing the tool jaws on the wire and simply rotating it to cut the insulation, and then tried to pull the cut insulation off with my fingers, but that did not work, because it's not possible to maintain a precise angle of wire entry into the tool jaws while rotating the tool.Read more ›
The Knipex 1102160 End-Type ADJUSTABLE wire stripper is comfortable, efficient and time saving. Just dial it up, or dial it down to fit your desired stripping diameter. It's worth the investment.
Better results were yielded using a pair of cable shears to lightly cut around the jacket and slide it off the wire.

Knipex makes great tools but these made a mess out of every cable I tried them on. I hate to leave a negative review on knipex gear but these wouldn't strip even if you made it... Read morePublished 18 months ago by Chrlsmcd
