  • cable scrapper's ultimate tool - no joke

    after months of stripping oversized (degaussing) cables with a utility knife, i came across this little beauty.
    it's a cable stripper used in the telecommunications industry to strip the sheath off coaxial cables used in cell phone towers.
    it's now my best friend, whether im in the workshop or on the road...... and it comes with a spare blade too.

    i will post a link in the wanted to sell/buy section of this forum (very soon).

    cheers,
    Mr Dude

    I started stripping a barrel of degaussing cables I've had sitting around for ages, I'm doing 'em all the time as I scrap tv's, usually when I have about 10 lying around i'll strip 'em.
    So I spent a couple nights stripping 'em with a knife and I stuffed up my left thumb, it went clicky and the base swelled up.
    looking at your vid again I noticed how much work your left thumb does aswell, doing a heap of cables in one hit with that tool will still give me strife.

    Have you tried to cut a cable and then stick it in a vice or something? I might try that so I don't need to use my thumb, just hold the other end and run the stripper along.

      good point- im gonna try to clamp the wire in a vice next time.The outer plastic tape was very stubborn on this one. The stripper work much better on smooth cables like power cords.

      that's some food for thought. It might be time i did an in-depth investigation. Time for the mythbusters.

    Power cords aren't worth stripping. Better off letting scrap buyers shred them up in their machines.
