Forge Steel Ratcheting Wire-Stripping Tool is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best time saver ever! Never had much use for some of these auto strippers before, just doing the odd wire or two, but had to replace all house sockets in one go with new wiring. These were the cheapest option and I don't normally buy the cheapest but on getting them they felt like good quality, at least for a diyer. I couldn't believe how easy they were to use, didn't bother with the depth stop and pulled it out as it's quite easy to get used to where you place the cutter along the wire to get your ideal wire length. I wish I'd bought some of these earlier, I could use them to cut the wire to length then strip them in a matter of seconds, did 2.5mm mains wire outer just as easily as the inner wires. Don't know how they'd stand up to extended pro use but for a diyer they are a bargain and a must have even for the odd wire here and there you need to strip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First use of Wire Strippers Never used automatic wire strippers before but opted for these due to price drop. Handy little time saver tool which I wish I had bought sooner. Easy to use, but have found that sometimes the waste sheathing doesn't drop out, getting stuck in the mechanism/jaws which prevents the ratchet faces returning completely for next use so only scored it a 4 on performance. Reliability will tell in time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strip with ease I purchased these to replace a more expensive pair that were not up to the job, the blade chipped cutting 1.5mm cable. These however are up to the job stripping cable with ease and saving time. I would recommend these

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. Though very similar to other strippers, mostly same parts, its jaws were floppy resulting in poor performance. It regularly locked up and then one of the springs broke. Though I am a heavy user of this type of tool, 500+ strips per day, I felt it should last longer. Bought another brand and so far it has none of these faults.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ratcheting Wire Stripping Tool I have used similar tools in the past. This one with the red guide stop makes it so easy to get the right length. I have recently started conducting PAT inspections and certification, having these in the bag helps me speedily get a plug rewired and move on.
