What is a wire stripper?
A wire stripper and a wire cutter is a small, hand-held tool that is used to remove, or strip, the electrical insulation from wires. Wire strippers have a pair of blades that pull the insulation clean from the wire. Many wire strippers are also equipped with a cutting tool to cut through the wire should that be necessary. Wire strippers and wire cutters can be wither automatic or manual. The manual wire stripper is used by rotating it around the insulation while applying pressure to cut the insulation. The insulation can then be easily peeled back. The automatic wire stripper grabs the wire from one side and cuts and removes the insulation from the other side. HomElectrical has a wide variety of both automatic and manual wire strippers and cutters for every need.
