I worked as an apprentice in the trade in my late teens. I got pretty quick at prepping wire terminations but not that fast.

Sent this thread to my son-in-law, who's going to be wiring their new home soon. It'll save him many hours I'm sure.

Got to be one of the greatest inventions of the last 50 years! I might get one, too, even though I don't do much wiring these days.

that design has been available for decades. I've had a pair since '83 when I started to rewire old Sea Scout boats. Irwin might have added the cutter holes, but those adjustable strippers are nothing new. Heck, even Harbor Freight has that style. [www.harborfreight.com]

.this
old design, dressed up with some vinyl trim and re-invented.
That said, it is a handy tool to have when you have lots of wiring to do.
Old-timers still use 8-10" side cutters with a notch filed in one blade...
