Rated 5 out of 5Â by Dick Almost as easy as opening a can of beans
Makes a quick and easy job of cutting the sheath of AC and MC cable without damaging the insulation or wires. I've been using it for 3 weeks now on my home wiring project and it's worked perfectly every time.
While the operation of this tool is fairly obvious, the instructions provided are a bit sparse. The photos and captions below are intended to help with this.
I find it expedient to adjust the cable holder for each use, loosening it for easy insertion of the cable and snugging it up again prior to cutting. There is a spring and pivot to facilitate this, but I find it easier to do it this way than to find the adjustment that works properly without ever touching the knob. The time required to do this is maybe 2-3 seconds, but I still counted it as a con. I didn't illustrate this step in the photos. The design could be altered to eliminate this, but I don't think the improvement would justify the cost increment.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by JustMe Easy to use, great price, save a lot of time.
I have never use one of these tools before and seen it on youtube. I was installing mc cable and wanted something to cut it and this is great. Adjust the depth and start cutting. It saved me alot of time and trouble and was super easy to use. Nice product.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Junior Can strip MC faster than I can strip Romex
I will never do without this tool again. It is worth every penny. Clean, fast cuts every time. Haven't nicked a conductor yet, although I've only used it a few times.
The only con: set screw (controls depth of cut) was so tight I partially stripped the head upon first use. It's like they used locktite at the factory.
