Most household electrical tasks involve cutting and stripping wires or screwing down often hard to reach parts. Weve selected this set of professional German tools for maximum utility and safety. Each works so well we were startled the first time that we used them.

The two #1 Screwdrivers - Phillips and slotted, are insulated (rated to 1000 volts) along the shaft to an inch of the hardened tips, which are well ground and magnetized - a welcome feature when reaching deep into a junction box. The Automatic Wire Stripper is a precision machine that requires no adjusting. It strips the most common range of wire diameters (24 10 AWG) stranded or solid, and is fast and comfortable even in tight spaces. It has an adjustable stop for regulating the amount of strip, and a small cutter for trimming kinked ends. The real wire cutting however, should be left to the specially designed Scissors. Its stainless steel blade has micro-teeth to hold the wire firmly as it cuts.

Not Ready For Prime Time
Reviewed By:   (Bartlesville, Oklahoma) 
This is definitely not a kit for home electrical applications. The 2 screwdrivers are insulated but are not robust enough to handle such tasks as connecting typical household wire to wall switches or receptacles, not to mention connecting wires to a circuit breaker in a breaker box. The blades are just too small for household electrical work. The wire stripper wouldn't strip wire larger than AWG 16 nor would the scissors cut wire larger than that size. Cutting or stripping AWG 10 is out of the question. This would more aptly be a kit for an electronic application where smaller wire and screws would be used.

Hi LWillie- I'm sorry that these tools have been a disappointment to you. All of our tools are backed by a 90-day return policy so if they don't meet your expectations please return them for a full refund. We've used them extensively to become personally familiar with their function. Here is what we (and others) experienced:
We had no problems stripping a range of wires from 24 to 10 gauge (AWG), particularly household wires at 12 & 14 gauge. We also stripped phone wires and wires for hobby electronics - no problem. We did experience that it functions best when actuated with a quick decisive squeeze. When we used it slowly so we could watch how it strips the cable - because frankly, we were fascinated - it was less effective. Speed is an important part of its function. As for the screwdrivers, the flat head is intended for the slotted screws found on faceplates. The Philips worked nicely for all the work we've done inside switches, outlets etc. The scissors always cut well for us, all gauges. However, none of these tools are meant for work inside a breaker panel. Breaker panels require a high level of professional knowledge about torque requirements, safety protocols, etc. that we do not encourage a non-professional to attempt.

Nice

Nice set of basic tools, especially like the scissors, the stripper is a little flimsy.
