Southwire is expanding its hand tool lineup with a more robust line of strippers and cutters. Up first on our plate is the Southwire Forged Romex Stripper. So far, we really like what we see.
After getting our hands on 13 pairs of wire cutters and spending three days relentlessly snipping wire ties, finish nails, hardware cloth, welded wire fencing, and thick electrical wire, we believe the best tool for most is the Channellock ECB Diagonal Cutting Plier. The wide, padded handles—a surprisingly rare feature among wire cutters—eased hand strain during difficult repetitive cutting. The durability is outstanding as well.
The blade on these strippers swivels so you can make end and center strips. An ergonomic handle provides a comfortable grip and protects your knuckles from scrapes. One squeeze strips outer and inner insulation and pulls it off Romex and other types of flat cable.
Dual Romex Stripper. Strips single conductor 12 or 14 AWG. Power spring return reduces hand fatigue.
The IDEAL T wire stripper addresses the requirements of electricians accessing cramped junction boxes, electrical cabinets and other enclosures, as well as inside restrictive building structures. Straight pull removal is far less fatiguing than a side twist wrist motion. The multi-functional T Catalog has precision-ground, knife type blades for clean, accurate stripping of Romex cable in a range of AWG, as well as standard solid and 18 AWG stranded wire.
If someone offered you brisket and BBQ ribs at a company picnic, would you really limit yourself to one or the other? When it comes to the tools you use on the jobsite, why limit yourself to one specific tool when you can have two and get the job done faster. In fact, what if those two tools could be combined into one super tool giving you the power to get wiring jobs done in a flash?!
A wire stripper is a small, hand-held device used to strip the electrical insulation from electric wires. A US-style simple manual wire stripper is a pair of opposing blades much like scissors or wire cutters. The addition of a center notch makes it easier to cut the insulation without cutting the wire. This type of wire stripper is used by rotating it around the insulation while applying pressure in order to make a cut around the insulation.
