I hope to heck these are better than the janky 30ga strippers SparkFun sells — with as much pressure as it takes to squeeze the spring, the 30ga can be squeezed to 35ga. The Xcelite flush cutters I bought are definitely top notch, so I can only assume these strippers are just as sweet.
@jason – thanks! we only stock the best, hand selected and tested by ladyada – we spent a long time trying out all of the tools and we like these the best!
Jason, these are definitely the awesomest – and i own a half dozen different brands!
Life is to short to go around building stuff with crappy tools. The best advice I ever got was to always buy the best tools you can afford, and if you can’t afford them, then save your pennies until you can.
I have a garage full of tools that are older than many of the makers who visit here.
