I use the Rolson wire strippers - http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/rolson-wire-stripper-and-cutter-n37gc.
Can be found elsewhere - Machine Mart I think?

An interesting tool to say the least.
DC or DCC, that is the question.

Thanks for all the recommendations. I hadn't realized there was such a range of prices and qualities. I eventually went for an EXPO stripper from Eileen's, we'll see how long that lasts...

I use one of these http://www.amazon.com/Gardner-SE-92-Strip-Easy-Automatic-Stripper/dp/B00004WLKZ and find it to be excellent.  Similar devices are available from an assortment of sources.  Amazon has a selection of different types.

Regards, Allan.....

I have one similar to that from Maplin - works great. It's a little on the large side (pun intended) so not so good for small spaces but pretty good otherwise.
 :beers:


I too have the one from maplin. Works great.

However as mentioned a bit big, trying to strip a broken wire under the base board was a bit of an issue.

I've just bought a pair of these from Screwfix.  Works a treat on 7 core cable:

A tad under 20.00.

I'll second the motion on these. I've had mine for a few years and they work a treat. Don't have to think about the gauge of wire you are stripping with these.

As it happens my Rolsen strippers gave up the ghost after three years use so I bought a pair of the CK strippers today from Toolstation where they are a little cheaper.

I'm very impessed with them, stripped 24 ends of 24/0.7 cable in less than 5 minutes. Thanks for the recommendation :)

Cheers
Dave

Hi

Just to let everyone know that Lidl has a crimp set in stock - actually automatic wire stripper and crimper  - I have one and works very well, Good quality and has worked hard over the last few months - type that grips wire while stripping and can be set for gauge and length - also have Digital verniers for anyone that needs one - and box of various thickness shrink tube in small sections. My local had plenty in stock.

All well priced (I think)

I use a Jokari Super 4 plus, it is a pistol grip style stripper - I've had it for 2 years and it has seen a lot of use.
The only down side is that it needs about 8mm of lead to grip above the stripper blade.
I used to use side cutters (for about 35 years) but this is easier and if you have arthritis like me they are essential.
