So I plunked $20 on a pair of Irwin Wire Strippers.
I had been using a pair similar though not as sharp as this:
They’re operated by pushing a piece of insulated wire through one of the holes. Spin then pull. Its effective sure but had a nasty habit of nicking the wire.
Just received these about half an hour ago:
These work a little bit differently in that you insert the wire, and squeeze the handles. The two little lugs at the top or left most side of the tool in this view rotate downward as they separate from each other. Takes the insulation right off the wire. I’ve tried it out on 22 gauge and smaller wire already. Works great. Less effort too.
