Greenlee's 1955-SS Pro Wire Stripper strips the outer jacket off of both solid and stranded wire. It features a pliers nose for working with small nuts and pulling wire. The wire stripper has long, curved cutter blades that can reduce the force required to make a cut by 25 percent and it cuts NM in one single cut. It also has machined stripping stations with a positive stop to provide precise stripping diameters and a hole in the jaws for looping wires. The wire stripper features ergonomically designed extra long cushioned handles that provide superior comfort and reduce user hand fatigue. It also features an opening stop which prevents the spring from disengaging and a lock tab to protect cutting edges during storage. The 1955 Pro Wire Stripper is a great addition to any tool kit.
