I'll have to check the halfords ones out thanks,I once had a 1/4 socket set 'halfords professional' that was really good. The problem with me is I leave them on jobs so it puts me off spending loads.

Very true mate, I'll know where to look in future for any tools and stuff. Can't recommend them enough if they are even half as good as these! :D

Yeah, I use these for everything now haha! They are great as small pliers and wire cutters as well as the stripping bit! It's almost like a multitool!

Hello Everyone

My current wire strippers are finally starting to fail after over 10 years of faithful service. It's time to get some new ones, but which type is best?

btw. I am in the US, so can't use the UK stores that have been recommended

I have narrowed my choices too these two:

http://www.newark.com/knipex/12-62-1...8mm/dp/06R6274

http://www.newark.com/duratool/d0162...mm2/dp/41R5485

But there are so many here http://www.newark.com/stripping-tools_wire not sure if I have made the best choice.

I would like to get some that would be good for everything from kynar wire to electrical work.

Any ideas, what are you using?

Thank you

Hi ThomasLayne and welcome to the site.

I've been using the same strippers for years and I'm dreading the day they need changing. I've got ones like this
www.newark.com/duratool-formerly-from-s ... _Wire_None
And never had a problem with them.


With anything like this, its down to what you feel is the best, ones that I like and work for me might not be the same for you.

Saying that the one you linked to here www.newark.com/knipex/12-62-1...8mm/dp/06R6274
are nice and if I was in the market then I would consider them
tis Better to have tried and failed than never to have tried at all

I blame spelling errors and my writing skills or lack of...... On fred!!!!!! My blood clot (yes I really did name it lol)
