Great tool for the money – Multi-purpose Wire Stripping Tool (0.5/1.2/1.8/2.0mm) Reviews

Pros:
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.
Cons:
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.
Other:
Wish they'd more clearly delineate these tools as AWG instead of mm sizes.
Bottomline:
Buy it. Then buy SKU 06309 cause you'll need that too!
