Self-Adjusting Wire Strippers
« on: September 08, 2013, 05:32:16 PM »

I don't own one yet, but had the chance to use one the other day. One of the slickest wire strippers I have ever used.

When I worked in commercial laundry,   and had lot of Vandaliism,   those were invaluable.    What's nice,  AJ,  is if you don't have that long a wire.    Hard to strip with hand strippers,   but with the automatics they grab down and  clamp the wire then strip.    Good for tight places.    I ,   like Rah,  Keep them in my extra toolbox.    Don't use them alot anymore.    But ,   they are there if I need them.  That particular pair looks real nice........
