I'm going to get some automatic wire strippers to try and save me a little time and more importantly my wrists thumbs and paws in general.

Does anyone have any recommendations? along with limitations of sets they have.
I don't mind buying a couple of sets but really don't want to buy stuff to sit in a box.

I've come to the conclusion that if I don't start changing the way I work I have a future filled with bitterness and pain. :D

Thanks in advance as always. :)

I’m at that stage, painful thumbs on stripping and cutting..
Got a good range cutters from small right through the range.
I have automatic strippers that do t+e and flex.
Also have paslodes for the fine wires.
Last year I bought a pair of weidmuller all in one strippers and boot lace crimpers for panel building, saves me loads of time and pain.

I have ck auto strippers , rarely get used these days.
I bought them as an apprentice because I thought they looked the dogs dangles.

Top Tip..
Keep hold of them..
Don’t wait till you need them, start using them well in advance..
Especially if say, you have 200 flexes to strip and terminate a day
