Wire strippers are a versatile and essential tool used in a variety of applications, such as electrical work, electronics, and telecommunications. They are primarily used for removing the insulation from electrical wires to prepare them for connections, such as joining wires together, attaching them to terminals or devices, or repairing damaged wires.

Tips: Can a wire stripper be used to cut the wire?
Some wire strippers are designed to cut wires as well as strip insulation, while others are not. Wire strippers that are capable of cutting wires have a cutting blade located near the pivot point of the tool. These wire strippers can be used to cut wires to the desired length after stripping the insulation.
However, it's important to note that wire strippers are not designed for heavy-duty cutting, such as cutting thick or hard materials. They are generally designed to cut small to medium-sized wires, and using them to cut larger or tougher materials can damage the cutting blade or the wire stripper itself.
Therefore, it's always best to use the appropriate tool for the job. For heavier-duty cutting tasks, such as cutting thick wires or cables, it's best to use a dedicated wire cutter or pliers designed for that purpose. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines when using wire strippers for cutting wires.
