    Best wire strippers EVER

    Been using these for a while. Got tired of paying 30 to replace klines all of the time. The best thing is they flip to cut or strip and they have alife time warrantee.

    Never heard of them but since I just lost another pair of Klien strippers I'm in the market. I'll give them a look see tomorrow.
    I'm not tolerating Political Correctness anymore, from now on it's tell it like it is.

    Huh... $13 is hard to beat but I do like my Klein's... now if I can just remember to cut off the power so I don't make so many burn/melt spots on them they'd last forever!

    I think it will help you last longer too.

    Best I ever had were the Vaco 1963, crimper, cutter, striper. They don't make them anymore When ever I see a really old hardware store, or an Estate sale with tools, I take a look. Klien tools, bought them out, and their's doesn't even come close.

    I really hate to do that but, sometimes you really have no choice.
