Default Ebay Wire Stripper Suggestion

Hi,

Can anyone suggest a good wire stripper, preferably something less than USD15 from Ebay? Should be free shipping to my country as well, so i guess it's limited to Chinese products. I don't want to spend too much on something i can live without so far

Should i go with something that works like simple pliers or the "auto" ones where the wire gets clamped and stripped by one pull?

I use this, and out of all strippers I have, I like this one the most. I have different brand that I purchased locally, but this type. I tried and own many, but this one works by far the best.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Do not worry you are unable to break it, it would rust and die by it self.

That is it. The same type. You do not need to buy the same brand just the type. You did good.

I have used that type from several manufacturers over the years. The biggest disadvantage is that most units of this type only go to AWG22 or AWG24.

I've been generally pleased with all of them, though the one I have now (I think it's from "Klein") seems to give consistent results with less mental effort than most of them.
