Think your calculator is on the blink Markie.Update: Wire stripper notches from AWG18 0.403" (approx 1mm diameter) to AWG10 0.129" (approx 0.35mm diameter), which is not even large enough to strip 1mm[SUP]2[/SUP] (approx 1.1mm diameter) solid conductors.
Oops! Trust Wikipediia conversion... NOT! Thanks for correcting that, should have checked my source, particularly as it was Wiki, but was in a rush. Of course you are right 18AWG is 0.0403" (I make that 1.02mm, not your 0.772mm) diameter, approx 0.82mm[SUP]2[/SUP] and 10AWG is 0.1019" (2.59mm) diameter, approx 5.26mm[SUP]2[/SUP] As you can see my previous post was unnecessarily alarmist, the stripping range is actually a useful 0.82mm[SUP]2[/SUP] to 5.26mm[SUP]2[/SUP].Think your calculator is on the blink Markie.
18 AWG is 0.0403" dia, 0.772mm dia, and 10 AWG is 0.1019" dia, 2.59mm dia. Certainly 10 AWG is bigger than 18 AWG.
