Recommended Posts

What kind of wire are you trying to strip?

These are what I use everyday for smaller gauge wire:

I'm a fan of the T-Rex style strippers. PartsExpress The built in cutter with efficiently cut 12g speaker wire, but you have to be careful not to stick too much in there otherwise you can ruin the pivot. They do take a little while to get dialed in but once you do you can take a wiring harness and strip 4 wires with one motion in the jaws. This stripper saves lots of time if you are going to be doing lots of deck installs. Also this style of stripper will automatically strip a coaxial antenna cable without going into the second layer. I still use a regular scissor style stripper for making larger larger cuts up to 4g.
