Very well designed wire stripper – Multi-purpose Wire Stripping Tool (0.5/1.2/1.8/2.0mm) Reviews

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

Pros:
o It really does strip 0.5mm Kynar wire perfectly!
o The price is very, very cheap for the professional tool that you are buying.
o Free shipping planet wide :-)
Cons:
o Not quite as easy to use as it could be because it opens a long way between the two grips and is not very comfortable. If you have small hands, you would probably find that the two grips are too far apart to be usable.
Other:
o It does exactly what it says it will do for very thin wire guages. As I said, I bought it for stripping Kynar wire which it does beautifully on the 0.5mm setting (the smallest available).
o I originally bought a "Best" brand #5023 wire stripper that claimed to strip 0.25mm, 0.32mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm, 0.6mm and 0.8mm wire - the 0.25mm setting could NOT even strip the Kynar 0.5mm wire! Buy this instead.
Bottomline:
If you need to strip very thin guage wire, then this is the tool for you.
