A really great tool

6 posts in this topic

Hi Midiboxers,

I want to show you a very useful tool.
A wire cutter with built-in wire stripper.
It works really good. I don't know how I could have lived without it before :smile:
Here is a small video:

Best regards

It's a Hobbico Wire Cutter.  You can get it a Amazon for about $14 USD.  Ebay also has them along with some Hobby stores.  They are great for stranded wire larger that 26 AWG gauge wire but will nick the wires if solid copper.  I have had some problems with wires breaking over time at the strip point when used on small gauge telephone wires.  This was on an Organ with over 3000 soldered wires.

I bought it from eBay. Just search "2 in 1 wire cutter".

I can confirm what kpete said, small wires with solid copper sometimes break off.

If this happens, unhook one of the two "return springs" and try if it works better.

Best regards
