Wire strippers

Apologies to the mods, this is probably in the wrong section, but I didn't see one that fit, so feel free to move this to another sub forum.

Looking to get a GOOD pair of wire strippers for christmas. Auto sizing, adjustable fixed length, etc. I hate trying to strip a bundle of wires and cutting into the insulation of the inner wires, so I'm looking for the right tool.

What do you experts use?

the forum search ?


I have been doing some panel wiring. 18ga stranded wire.

I just bought these to try them out


I have tried several different designs and ended up using this style.

I use a pair like these. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Blue-Spot-08190-Inch-Strippers/dp/B000LP9X3E/ref=sr_1_6/276-4204263-6963266?ie=UTF8&qid=1447642868&sr=8-6&keywords=wire+strippers They're adjustable to almost any size wire.

dave-in-nj, those would be good if they went smaller, like 26 or 28.

Nope. I can't get the forum's 'insert URL' to work for me. In Chrome, highlight the URL, right click and click the Goto line. Else copy and paste the URL into your browser.

I just type them in (the code tags), IE11 screws it up too much when I paste. Find it works best if I type in the opening url tag, paste the link, then type the closing url tag. Same for images. I think I must have caught yours between edits.
