WHAT DOES A WIRE STRIPPER MEAN?

Used for removing the protective coating of an electric wire to replace or repair the wire. It is a portable handheld tool that is also capable of stripping the end portions of an electric wire to connect them to other wires or terminals. A wire stripper is often considered an important tool for DIYers and professional engineers.

TWO MAJOR TYPES OF WIRE STRIPERS

Wire strippers can be categorized into two main types: Automatic wire stripper and manual wire stripper. 

The automatic wire stripper can even help novices cut and strip wires quickly. However, when one side is held tightly and the other side is cut and removed, it is only applicable to wires in a specific size range. It may break small wires, while large wires may not be able to insert into its jaws.

Wire strippers are commonly made of steel and they have different shapes and sizes. The handles can be either straight or curved and, in most cases, are covered with rubber coating to provide a secure grip. They usually have serrated teeth, which comes handy while stripping wires and wire strippers often have a wire cutter as well.

BASICS FOR STRIPING A WIRE

Note that copper wire commonly comes in either solid or stranded forms. Stranded copper wire is slightly larger in diameter than solid wire of the same gauge. A wire stripper has a series of crimp holes ( labelled holes ) that match the common wire gauges, typically 20 AWG -10 AWG indicating the size of the terminals. It is important to ensure that you use the correct set of making for the wire type you are crimping.

When you insert the wire into the proper hole and squeeze the tool’s handles, it precisely crimps the terminals without damaging the copper wire. The tool then removes the wire insulation using one of the two methods.

HOW WIRE IS STRIPPED

Despite the difference in versions offered by different brands and manufacturers, the process for stripping wires is largely the same with each tool. This is the process for the standard tool:

Determine the wire gauge and type. Know the gauge of the wire you want to strip. You can find this on the outermost sheathing that binds multiple wires together inside a non-metallic sheathed cable. With a number such as 12/2, Also note whether the wire is solid or stranded copper.

Match the wire to the tool: Match the wire gauge with the appropriately labelled hole on the wire stripper, if you choose a hole that is too big, the insulation will not be fully cut and you will have a hard time stripping it; the wire can be nicked or even severed entirely if you choose a hole that is too small.

Open the tool and seat the wire. Open the wire stripper handles. Seat the wire into one side of the proper hole. Slowly press the handles together until they can go no farther. This action will cut through the insulation on the wire.

Twist (optional): If the wire insulation does not fully cut, you may have to gently rotate the wire within the hole (or the wire stripper around the wire, whichever is easier). You do not have to rotate far: just a quarter turn in one direction and back.

Strip the insulation: Pull the wire stripper towards the cut end of the wire to remove the insulation. Some users find it easiest to push against the tool using the thumb on the hand that is gripping the wire, while the other hand holds the handles of the tool firmly shut.
