Very handy – Cable Stripper (4-Sizes) Reviews

posted by frills on 05/01/2008 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Affordable. Most local suppliers charge an arm and a leg for cabling equipment like this. Sharp blades score PVC cladding easily. Very quick and handy. Sturdy, yet lighter and more portable than the metal Y-head variety.
Cons:
Can't really think of any. It does exactly what it is supposed to do.
Other:
Poke the cable guide out from the back. Reinsert the guide with the desired cable diameter facing down.
Press down on the grip to open the clamp and stick the cable end through the guide.
Stick a finger into the loop and give the tool a spin around the cable to score the cladding, and then you can pull it right off.
Bottomline:
A cheap, portable and effective cable stripper.
