8 In Solid and Stranded Wire Stripper, 24 to 10 AWG Capacity is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Like Mortimer said. It does not work on THHN type wire. All it does is scuff up the insulation. This should be stated in the product description. Now I have to buy something else from a different manufacturer. It would also be nice if it came with some instructions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from have used it for years, and still works great I bought this tool many years ago. To this date, it still works great! Someone complained about it not working with stranded wire...well, it's not quite meant for stranded wire. As a matter of fact, regular wire strippers come in two types - solid wire or stranded wire. This tool is for SOLID wire. get s separate tool if you need to strip stranded wire, IMHO. This is an invaluable tool for wiring outlets, lights, switches, circuit breaker boxes, etc

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointing This works fine for many gauges of wire and types of insulation. However, for the common THHN and THWN stranded wire that I use a lot, it does not. It merely strips the outer layer of insulation, and does not make a nice clean cut. This device does not have a true blade for cutting, but grabs the insulation on either side and depends upon the tensile force generated to break the insulation and remove it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, time saving wire stripper! I purchased this tool about five years ago, I just finally have broken them completely. I'm an electrician and use these strippers 100's of times per day. After the first 6 months or so of heavy use, the cutter was visably worn and wouldn't work as well as originally, however, I was able to use my thumb to help hold the insulation from slipping and it had worked for 4 years like that. Finally this week, the back plastic cracked and started to really not function well. I went and bought another one, unaware of the lifetime warranty. Honestly, with the extreme usage I've gotten out of them, I certainly didn't mind buying another. There was a small learning curve to use them at the beginning, but being able to strip Romex coating with one simple squeeze and then being able to strip 12 or 14 gauge wire in seconds, means that I don't need to have pockets full of tools to do receptacle or switch/lighting work. Being able to easily strip stranded lighting wiring without worrying the gauge is awesome. Easily one of my favorite tools in my bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Tool, But Plastic Depth Gauge Broke Quickly I bought this a couple of months ago, and it's one of my favorite tools. The only problem is that the yellow plastic depth gauge broke after only a few uses. I looked on the website hoping I could find the replacement part, but I am not finding it. I will gladly change my review to five stars if I can be directed to where I can find a replacement yellow plastic depth gauge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful Tool I've used these for a while now and they work great! Occasionally they will cut through a very fine wire, but for medium and larger wire sizes, they are great! My favorite thing about them is that they are so quick and easy to use. You don't have to use a different slot for a different wire gauge and you don't have to sit there and twist and slide for each wire you strip. I frequently will strip two wires at a time with one quick squeeze!
