Rated 4 out of 5Â by Shaun Good starter Linesmen's
Bought these after buying the Commercial Electric 7-piece set with the pouch. They are fine Linesmen's. Not as "tough" metal as some others I've seen but they are great for a starter Electrician like myself or someone on a budget. They cut fine, they twist wire fine, I like the grips and handles they have a nice feel. The Wire Stripper part is iffy - they don't work like real Wire Strippers. At first I was like these suck blah blah! but then I learned how to use them. The holes don't seem to line up perfectly, but if you put your wire in there and just "feel for the right grip" and give it a couple rotations and then ease up before you pull the casing off the wire, they work fine. I think I was gripping it too hard and it was basically trying to take off the wire with it - instead it's better to use them to just make the cut on the insulation then lighten up the grip and pull it off. The teeth on the pliers seem ok, but they look like they will wear out eventually. Either way it I'd rather buy 3 of these than 1 pair of Klein's.
