Stripping Capacity: 24 - 10 AWG (0.2 - 6.0mm2)

Series 583 Automatic Wire Stripper
Actually bought these for my Dad to use on the wiring for his HO trains. He regularly uses 22 to 24 AWG. These strippers easily cut and strip both those size wires. I tested on some 16 AWG primary wire and these strippers had no issue with either cutting or stripping. I did find the strippers do not work well with teflon coated wire, but work amazingly for PVC coated wires. Also, I'm a little leary of the 10 AWG claim. I was just barely able to cut 12 AWG, but caused the strippers to flex quite a bit. I would probably use a different wire cutter for 10 AWG or a proper cable shear. Overall, a great product, will want to pick up a unit for myself in a the near future!
At first moment it became my favorite tool
Easy to use and saves time
Irreplaceable when it comes to small places where regular stripper will not fit
I was expecting better, they are good but not always I've been using them since about a week and at times they can't strip off 12 gauge new wire insulation. On 18 gauge of ballast wires they cut it but don't take it off completely.
I threw these in with my order because I was getting tired of constantly guessing wire gauge size and placement with my old style strippers. These performed flawlessly giving me perfect results with no guessing. They also don't damage the wires inside as my old strippers did. I didn't toss my old strippers but I doubt that I'll ever be reaching for them when I have the Felo's around
Very very well on stranded and well on solid core wire. Works better on smaller sizes- 14awg and smaller.
Good tool, it works really well.
This is the best wire stripper I have ever used. I recently purchased a IRWIN VISE-GRIP Multi-Tool Wire Stripper/Crimper/Cutter and it did not work on 12 gauge wire at all. The Felo strips beautifully! I am not sure it would work on 10-gauge (I did not have any to test it on), but does a great job on 12. I highly recommend it! AND it has a 15 year warranty! Unheard of these days!
Never going back! This is the way to strip stranded wire, works just as well on solid core. The wire cutter could be a bit more robust. The mechanism is smooth and lightweight. I love it. R
