    Default Simple question

    What is the best tool to strip speaker wires from its casing? I bought a tool at Fry's, but doesn't work all that great. I am using monster speaker wires, bought as a spool. Yes, I realize that some of you might say, monster is not the way to go, but it was a great deal for a 100 feet of speaker cable.:D

    Thank you,

    I have the QuikStrip that I bought from an infomercial on TV, it works quite well, and leaves you with a clean "strip"....

    Looks like the price has come down from the TV price of 19.99:D

    I don't know if you have a Lowe's around you, but you should be able to get what you need for around $8. Just make sure that if you have 10 gauge wire, that you purchase one that strips 10 gauge stranded and not solid-core. More often than not, it will make the distinction on the package.

    I was wondering about that one during its run a while back...

    2Learn,
    Sears is where I buy almost all my hand tools. Good prices, big selection and great warranty.

    With wire strippers, just don't opt for the cheapest, get one with a little heft.
    More later,

    It is probably the only thing that I have bought off TV that I actually still use. I have the Jack Lalane (sp?) juicer that is sitting in the cupboard..:D
