The Xuron 501 Adjustable Wire Stripper is designed for stripping wire sizes from 10 to 26 AWG (American Wire Gauge)/2.59-0.405 mm in electronics, electrical, and telecommunications applications. A thumb-adjustable cam sets the stripper to the wire diameter for accurate cuts. The cutting blades are made from alloyed steel for durability, and they bypass one another for square cuts without spikes, reducing cutting effort and mechanical shock. This wire stripper has cushioned rubber handle grips and return spring for user comfort. Precision wire strippers are typically used by electricians, electromechanical technicians, or telecommunications technicians to repair or install wiring.
Xuron Corp. manufactures precision hand tools such as wire cutters and strippers, scissors, and pliers for electronics, aerospace, plastic molding, wire processing, hobby, craft, jewelry, and fishing industries. The company, headquartered in Saco, Maine, was founded in 1971.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
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.
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.
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.

No markings is really annoying. Make sure you don't want the 505 or 505ST.Published 19 months ago by Brian Sullivan
I love this tool. The comfortable handle doesn't feel extremely sturdy, but this is not a tool that I will be using with a lot of force or torque. Read morePublished on June 13, 2014 by Mark A. Eytcheson
