A good buy – Cable Stripper (4-Sizes) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
A nice model of a cable stripper. Can be used not only with coax cable, but with "usual" one-wire too. The blades seem to be sharp, cutting even the toughest insulation.
Cons:
Is not very useful with thin wire - I have to work with Russian-made ShGES (????) cable, which is 4 thin coaxes combined, and with a very tough insulation. Even with the thinnest setup available, I can only cut external insulation. Well, any way it is easier than stripping this wire with a knife.
Did not understand how to adjust the width between blades - but the default setup suits my needs.
Other:
The price seems good, but about two years ago I saw a similar tool in a local shop for less than 3$. I did not buy it then - and they disappeared misteriously from the shops, reappearing only recently with a price of more than 10 bucks. Well, you may understand that DX was the better choice.
Bottomline:
A useful tool if you have to do a lot of cable-work.
