I have a large H.O. scale railroad with over a thousand wires (no exaggeration-see for yourself at Paulietree1 on YouTube.com) When I miss placed my Xuron 501 wire stripper I immediately ordered another one on Amazon. It is the best adjustable wire stripper I have ever used, and I cannot work on my layout without one. I eventually found the original, and now having 2 is even better.

I'm always on the hunt for a high-quality, compact, and easy-to-use wire stripper, and I was looking forward to receiving the Xuron. I was disappointed by it, however, for a couple of reasons.

1) When stripping smaller gauges of wire the handles close together until they're almost touching at the base, which makes the tool uncomfortable and difficult to control. Only at the largest gauge setting are the handles a reasonable distance from each other when cutting, and then only just.

2) The tool doesn't have any reference markings for wire gauge. I didn't expect this -- I thought I'd be able to quickly dial in the gauge of wire I wanted to strip. No such luck; you have to eyeball it or scratch your own markings on the cam.

These factors combine to make using this tool somewhat unpleasant, and I'm returning it to Amazon.

This is a high quality tool. Good weight. Good ergonomic grip.

The thumb dial to set the cutting depth is very easy to use. No need for hash marks, just eyeball it.

Super sharp. It even cut the fabric insulation on high temp wire with zero fraying.

It does a great job on fine wire, too.

Take note of the model numbers. The 501's work on solid and stranded core wire.

Just used it all day, building a reflow oven. It took all the hassle out of stripping the wire ends. I really like this wire stripper and recommend it to you.

This is the best wire stripper I've ever owned. The quality of fabrication is top-notch. The handles have great grip and shape. It is easy to use with one hand. The cam is nice and stiff and does not rotate unless you move it. The spring provides good return without being difficult to squeeze. Blades are sharp. The tool will be easy to maintain and I expect to own this forever and give it to my children some day.

The only criticism I have is Amazon's poorly chosen shipping packaging. Amazon used a giant cardboard box rather than a small padded envelope. The giant box provides inferior protection since the product can bang around inside. The giant box also consumes more material and volume.

I bought this stripper for small wire and I have to say that they are perfect.
Easy to adjust and really useful . Small but efficient .
They are essential in electronic and in where you need to stripper multiple wire.
Built in a simple and solid way.
