So I have liked strippers for the past 30 years. My first stripper I purchased from Kmart (of all places) when they had employee appreciation day and I got 20% off (my first job…. I told them our Kmart store was going to close after WalMart opened btw…. It did.) My first yellow stripper lasted the longest until the blade fell off somewhere. My second red Neiko 01924A lasted almost 5 years. My Neiko’s plastic red handle would keep falling off. (I guess I could have epoxied it or duct taped it? or #$@% it…. This tool just got super annoying to use…. sorry for the language! LOL 🙂 The handle is cheap and just not ergonomic. ) Today I got a tip from Greg about strippers…. About the Klein Tools 11061 stripper. So I purchase the Klein as my replacement…. Maybe it will last 5-25 years? 🙂
BTW The Klein 11061 cost $22.05 and the Neiko 01924A cost $16.58…. So it is really not worth getting a cheaper version if you plan on using the tool.
This is a really great type to have if you ever have to strip lots of cables…. Alone with a good pair of wire cutters (The built in cutters on these strippers are annoying to use more then once and because this tool is really used for lots of cable cutting do not think about it. 🙂 ) Great stripper design though.
I do have different style wire strippers in my bag. These are better for working on less wires. These are Klein Tools 11055…. I also have a smaller style and a couple different brands actually. I believe I have 2 of the Klein actually? 🙂
The new Leica M Monochrom has got to be the dumbest idea I have ever seen! Why would anyone want a $7,950.00 Digital Rangefinder (no lens included) which is ONLY Black & White? Can’t you just purchase a M9-P or a poor persons M9 ($6,995.00) and convert color images like a normal person?
Disclaimer: I have always wondered what other chemicals you could use for foam brush in a bind and I had some time to kill. Actually, my chemical guy sold me hand soap as foam brush chemical and it was my favorite. Now I use Erie Brush chemicals and really like their foam brush and wax.
Have you ever run out of chemicals and only had $1? What would be the best chemical to purchase from the Dollar Store? I am on assignment to root out the winner!
1) “Dial Basics HypoAllergenic” (bar soap, 3 bars) It is dematologist tested maybe even tested on animals? I cut the bars up with a knife.
2) “Classic Sun Clean & Fresh” (all purpose powder detergent 1.5 pounds)
3) “Dis’h Detergent Original Scent” (dish cleaner 50 ounces)
4) “Perfect 10 Black Currant Bodywash” (bodywash for your body 25 ounces)
5) “White Rain Conditioner Energizing Citrus” (hair conditioner 19.95 ounces)
I just dumped the products in then added 5 gallons of hot water and let sit for 24 hours.
Maybe not full strength but just the product along with 5 gallons of water.
Number 1: Dial Basics HypoAllergenic (bar soap, 3 bars) Very nice foam the only problem is you need a knife and some amount of time for it is disolve.
Number 2: Classic Sun Clean & Fresh Really a stupid product to try but at least it was $1.
Number 3: Dis™h Detergent Original Scent Really way to foamy.
Number 4: Perfect 10 Black Currant Bodywash Really to foamy.
Number 5: White Rain Conditioner Energizing Citrus Probably purchasing conditioner was not the best idea? I guess maybe shampoo?
