Review of the Klein 11061 Wire Stripper

The Klein 11061…. I just received the Klein strippers today and I will also have to show a comparisons with the Neiko 01924A later.  The build quality is really great the grip handle is split like the Neiko strippers but the Klein’s grip seem nicer.  The Klein seem like a better engineered product.  (I also found my original “yellow no name strippers” so I will need to show those also.)

#JoinNRA I mean #BoycottNRA it is working! LOL :)

Well…. Because one day when they come and get your pocket knife and baseball bat you will know you tried to defend your rights the civilized way.  They are already coming for your cigarettes and your food items.  It is disgraceful how politicians divide the working people just to cause trouble.  Forcing friends and family to fight for no true reason…. Just for reelection and tax money.

So You Like Strippers? I Love Strippers Also! :)

So I have liked strippers for the past 30 years.  My first stripper I can still remember her…. She was yellow and black.  She lasted the longest…. but the blade fell off somewhere.  I assume this stripper was a not a brand name because I purchased it from Kmart of all places.  My second a red Neiko 01924A which lasted almost 5 years.  My Neiko’s plastic red handle would keep falling off.  (I guess I could have duct taped it? or #$@% it…. This tool just got super annoying to use…. sorry for the language!  LOL 🙂  The handle was cheap and just not ergonomic in the hand. )  Today I got a tip while talking to a friend…. We were talking about strippers of course.  🙂  He recommended 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 of stripper to have if you ever have a lots of cables to strip…. Alone with a good pair of wire cutters (The built in cutters on these strippers are super annoying to use more then once or twice.  So because this tool is really used for lots of cable cutting just do not think about it.  🙂 )  Great stripper design though for lots of cable stripping.

I do have different style wire strippers in my bag though.  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?  🙂
