VERY solidly built; this tool feels totally pro. Compare at several times the price... it's the same or better. Buy SKU 06309 at the same time as each of these tools only does 4 wire guages and you'll need both eventually. When using these on the correct sire, they're awesome.
The more expensive strip tools have exchangeable blades; you'll need to buy at least one more for G/P work if you want to cover your stripping needs (ESPECIALLY 24AWG). Still, buying the other wire-guage tool (which I"m doing right now) is still WAY cheaper at $13 each than just one from AMP. The depth-guage is very hard to fit and adjust. I probably won't even mount it and just eyeball the strip length.
Wish they'd more clearly delineate these tools as AWG instead of mm sizes.
Buy it. Then buy SKU 06309 cause you'll need that too!
