Hello everyone. Lee from iGas Heating Ltd. I promised to do a review on behalf of Expert Trades for Tool Talk Reviews, reviewing the Klein Tools cable strippers and cable cutters.
I'll start with the strippers first. Very, very impressed to be honest. As I said before, normally stripping is with a standard knife. Not great, you can nick the innards and things like that, then you got to start again. I'll show you literally how easy this is. You've got some jaws at the top. Now, I'm not sure if these jaws can go up and down because one thing I've found, with thicker flex, I couldn't get it in. It really struggles to get in there. I've just got a smaller bit for the purpose of the review. But that's probably me to be honest. That probably can be adjusted so, something worth looking into.
I'll just show you quickly for the video how it easy, see that's gone in. What you do, squeeze it, there's your shiv, pull it off, job done. Why I didn't know, they're self adjusting, so to expose the bare copper inside for your actual wiring, again put the cable inside. Done. How good is that? So, so good. Let's do another one. That one. That one. Job done. Absolutely brilliant.
Slight negative now. The cable cutters. Ultimately for cutting cables, show you how easy that is. Brilliant, really good. But, if you want to then strip it to get the exposed copper, not great. Not great at all. So we've got a few cuts and turns. Give it a tug and you've got this exposed bit. Still a nice, neat cut and everything, but personally if I knew about this, I wouldn't buy this. Reason being, these are good for cutting the cables but not good for stripping. If I just just show you, these actually cut the cable as well as strip it. You've got, just in the handle here, some cutters. You just pop it in, job done. Really good. Personally, I give these a ten out of ten. These, depending what you use them for, obviously just for cutting the cable, great, ten out of then. Then if you want to strip it it's not great. I give it a five personally. You don't want to be carrying two tools to do the same job when you can do it with one from the same manufacturer.
Great tool. Very happy. Have a great Friday, peeps.
