An automatic wire stripper is such a neat and useful tool

Most people enjoy working on their classic cars, whether it is a Porsche or a Mini, a Volkswagen or a BMW. What most people do not like – and I’m no exception – is electricity. I do not really like all these wires, relays and connectors. But sometimes something has to be fixed, and you do not want to go to a store to have a broken cable repaired.
One of my garage buddies likes to call me Cable Hamster because I have removed so many cables from one of my cars to make it lighter. Well and once I’ve cut out too many and then the car stopped driving. But that is already a while ago.
What always bothered me was that there is no reasonable pliers to strip cables. I had this simple thing where you had to know which diameter the cable has, 0.5mm, 0.75mm, 1mm, 1.5mm.. Way too complicated. Then this friend gave me this wire stripper here, which makes it much easier. No matter how thick the cable is, just insert the cable, press the pliers and the front of the cable is beautifully stripped.
Good thing is, you can adjust the stripping length and the pliers can handle diameters of 0,2mm to 6mm automatically. And it’s got a v-shaped cutting knife as well. Such a great little tool!
Available on Amazon.COM or Amazon.DE for a few bucks.
