What is the difference between the common stripper WS-03A from the new model WS-10?

Answer

The only disadvantage of the common model is eliminated in the new one- KBT has added the function of cutting. The cutting area is located under the operational part of the frame. The cutting capacity is 6 mm², which corresponds to the maximum stripping capacity of the tool. Single closure of the handles ensures cutting.

Hand strippers

Question

Sometimes even if you have chosen the correct size of the profile for stripping wire, the tool cuts off some cores. What could be the reason for that?

Answer

In most cases, the reason is in bad quality of the cable. The conducting core should be located exactly in the center of the cable. Sometimes it gets shifted to the side and the tool damages it when stripping. It is better to use automatic models of stripping tools in such cases.
