Southwire Ergo Wire Strippers
Any gearhead or mechanic (and probably anyone else as well) should own a good pair of wire strippers. Fact is, you probably own several with arc marks that impead the cutting quality, or they were lackluster to begin with. If there’s even the remote possibility that your work will lead you to any sort of wiring, high-quality wire strippers will almost definitely come in handy at some point or another. While there haven’t been wild innovations since the first basic model came out who knows how long ago, some brands will work better than others. And, speaking of quality brands that consistently put out great products, it would only work to your benefit to check out the new line of Southwire Ergo Wire Strippers.
Southwire Ergo Wire Stripper Highlights
Southwire has released a whole line of Made In America hand tools available now. Like the other tools in this new line, the Southwire Ergo Wire Strippers were made from locally sourced materials, and manufactured and assembled entirely in the USA. From the dipping of handles to the forging and heat-treating of steel, the whole process was taken care of stateside.
Aside from their patriotic origins, the notable feature with the Southwire Ergo Wire Strippers revolves around their comfortable design. As their name states, Southwire designed these ergonomic strippers to fit compact and snug in the palm; the handle complements the natural curve of your hand. The double-dipped handles offer some decent cushioning as well. Squeezing through wires and screws never really feels uncomfortable, even when there’s a bit of resistance.
The handle lock on these strippers is easily toggled by the thumb. The cutting blades curve in a bit so that the wire stays centered as well. The spring feels solid and, and the whole thing is held together by an adjustable hex bolt.
The Southwire Ergo Strippers can strip between 10-18 AWG solid and 12-20 AWG stranded wire. Additionally, they can shear 6-32 and 8-32 screws without ruining the threads.
