I have used it once on various wires to test it out. Works like a charm. Think of a Leatherman E4 on steroids, that is the B&S Electrician.EDIT:Just took a few photos of the candidates. All would do a good job for an electrician.(Image removed from quote.)Left to right: Paladin 540, B&S ToolZall Pro Electrician, B&S? Toolzall Electrician, Leatherman ES4 and E4.(Image removed from quote.)
This set is made for electrician's apprentices, made by Klein, which is usually the brand most American electricians swear by. https://www.amazon.com/Kl...lein+Tools+apprentice+set
The Gerber Groundbreaker is an outstanding tool for electricians. All the other suggestion are good as well. http://forum.multitool.or....msg707529.html#msg707529
Thanks for the suggestions from you all and im now debatong on a Leatherman Super Tool 300 or a Wave!
you definently need a set of dedicated tools that are insulated, use the MT as backup or when you are 100% sure the wires are not live, so you dont get zapped or short circuit low voltage controls with bare metal of the MT. The klein stippers and pliers are really good. would recommend a MT with scissors, crimper, strong knife.
One last add though:I NEVER strip wires using a knife or stripping pliers...Always use cutting pliers to cut in the cable from 4-5 sides and pull hard.Wire: pinch down a little and pull.Takes some practice, but haven't hit copper the last 3 years...
