C.K Automatic Wire Stripper
Do not know why I have not bought one of these before now. Great piece of kit but no instructions supplied.

It's not just for crimping!
I've had wire strippers before, but never of this type, and boy am I impressed! As a DIYer, you don't always know about the best tools for the job until you stumble upon them, and I didn't buy these for stripping wire, just to crimp as my friend needed some wiring done on her car.
As wire strippers, they're fantastic! Twin and earth cable outer is easily removed - no more using a stanley knife (I still have a scar from where I slipped and cut deep into my hand some years back!). It strips the outer with ease and leaves the inner wires intact, so again no risk of nicking the inner cable sheifing.
It also cuts cable very well, and the ratchet mechanism helps with thicker cable.
The end stop on the wire strippers is a great idea to ensure you only strip what's required, and ensuring uniformity, making a tidy job. It does also swivel out of the way so if you've got to take a good length off of twin and earth cable for example, you can do so with ease.
I've not tried crimping yet, but by experience of all the other features on this tool, I think it'll work great.
I wish I'd got one years ago!

Best wire stripper that I have used to date. Wish I had bought one well before now.

Outrageously Simple To Use
I'm a heating engineer and have struggled to cut cable quickly and neatly.
This tool does a better job in no time at all and much safer than using a knife!
Best tool I've bought for some time.
