A variety of cables and wires are commonly used for computer, communications, electronic and electrical installations and generally include outer jackets of flat or round configuration formed of rubber or plastic materials. Most electrical wire includes one or a plurality of electrically conductive strands which are surrounded by an insulative coating. In order to make electrical interconnections with the wire, it is necessary to strip the insulation off the wire thereby revealing the electrical strands therebeneath. Cable strippers are devices used to strip a portion of insulation from one end of a conductive wire, thereby leaving an exposed conductive element ready to be connected as required. The main function of the wire stripper is to provide the capability of adjusting a stop for the cutters so that, when the device is closed, the cutters cut through the insulation around the wire, but do not nick or damage the wire conductor. Various cable strippers have been made available which serve for stripping the coating off the end of a coated wire and exposing the core in a required length. Wire strippers are essential tools for plumbing and electrical engineering. Wire strippers are used for stripping the insulating layer of coaxial electric cables, bus wires, or electric cords, or cutting the bus wires or electric cords. A coaxial cable stripper is a device convenient for cutting off an insulator from a coaxial cable. After each cutting operation, insulator chips must be completely removed so as not to obstruct further operation of a coaxial cable stripper.
