    For someone who just wants one what can you recommend ?

    For general DIY use, I’d think that you’d want one with a wide stripping range, and in a range that you’d typically encounter – like the one Jon purchased, or similar.

    These both also will shear 6-32 and 8-32 machine screws, have wire-looping holes, and are both USA-made:

    I was looking at some not long ago and found the ones with the wide range can be costly.

    I meant wide in comparison to some of mine pictured, which only do a couple of sizes, but they also strip the romex sheath. The ones I posted links for are only around $20, which is nothing for a pro-grade tool, I don’t think. They’d last a homeowner his lifetime, assuming they don’t burn them.

    I’m quite surprised at the price of those klein strippers. I’d have expected them to be quite a bit more.

    I’d buy some, if I didn’t hate electrical so much.

    Just about all of the strippers posted so far aren’t expensive….they just don’t seem to last as long as I’d like, in my experience. They tend to dull and cut poorly or hit a live wire and completely wreck them. Because of that, I thought I’d ask what everyone else has had luck with.

    I just received these to review on Friday afternoon. So far, I really like them, playing with them at home. I think they are like $43 at HD.

    I was checking out the different Klein styles online and did see those. They look much sturdier than your typical strippers and will do most sizes that a homeowner would need.

    where in toronto do they sell these? I think lowes has a small selection, but are there places to browse.

    Just a few of the very many that I own:

    @Sparky603,
    I got a pair of Klein strippers for Christmas but I find the grips a bit bulky compared to other wire strippers I own. Guess it’s a preference thing??
    The rubber on mine are glow in the dark, maybe that has something to do with them being thick?

    I seem to prefer the curved grip wire strippers over the straight grip ones. Most all the same. I do have a pair of Knipex that are very nice but most of the time just grab whatever is closest.

    Maybe he meant theses: Knipex 97-22-240 Crimping Pliers – MultiGrip. They are crimp ears and strippers. They also have automatic strippers. I have knipex linemans which are great.

    How well do those automatic strippers work? I’ve got a bunch of wire that I want to strip down, just looking for some options.

    I’ve seen the sparky using then and they look real slick.

    I have a few pair and they work very well. Lots of different tool companies make them so quality is all over the place. You can them from Harbor Freight or Irwin Tools and everywhere in between. They all work the same.
