If you are an electrician, it is not uncommon to build up a substantial stock of old romex wiring from completed jobs in a short period of time. Old and left over copper wiring is actually a great source of extra income when you are able to strip the insulation in a quick efficient manner. Even romex wire, which is mostly used in the North America housing market, can be of value! Its weight can add up quickly with 10/2 romex weighing in at an impressive 124 lbs per 1000 ft!

The ultimate romex wire stripping tool

With the dangers of burning the plastic insulation surrounding the wire becoming a serious concern for our environment, there has never been a better time to purchase your own StripMeister™ automatic wire stripping machine to eliminate that hazard!

The Stripmeister™ also comes with a “built in” romex adapter. With this option, the Stripmeister™ will cut thru the outer jacket and one of the THHN/THWN inside wires in the first pass! You will achieve another 33% time saving compared to similar tools.

Modern machines like the StripMeister™ are very user friendly , they do not need any extra tools to re-adjust for different wire sizes. It is manufactured to fit like LEGO!
