    These are what I have been using. They work pretty well, I learned pretty quick to not play with live wires.

Then I just have a pair of cheapy strippers that works well enough I've never upgraded to anything fancy.

    I have tried all types, including the ratcheting pro style. But these make the best crimps and do all types of connectors. I have a pair in every bag.

    I like this crimper set

    https://www.amazon.com/Tool-Aid-SGT1.../dp/B008EW92LY

    I like these Klein strippers. They are much heavier duty.

    Your friend has shared a link to a Home Depot product they think you would be interested in seeing.

    8 in. Heavy Duty Wire Stripper for 12-20 AWG Stranded and 10-18 AWD Solid Wire

    https://www.homedepot.com/p/206964840

    I also have a few automatic wire stripper but I have to look at the manufacturer. They do rebrand their stripper. I will reply later with links.

    I have the Klein you pictured, and I also had problems with the grips, they came loose. I reglued them, but Klein is really dropping in quality. I just had a Klein screwdriver handle BREAK when I dropped it to the floor, probably 4-5 feet, I was sort of stunned, I've never seen a handle break on a screwdriver ever. Oh well. I also carry the new forged stripper/crimper from Klein and it's great.

    Most of my hand tools are Knipex, Wera and Wiha. I can almost always trust the quality of German hand tools....sad to say

    I’ve had great luck with the crimper tool set with does. The strength of crimps beat my klein crimpers.
