Questions & Answers


What good is a wire stripper without a wire crimper?

Asked by Kona March 20, 2021

It strips the wire, which is what it was made for. All of the tools that are multi purposed are okay for all the supposed different uses, but aren't very good at any of them.

Can you ream out copper pipes with the reamer on these pliers?

Asked by Bubba March 14, 2021

Yes, you can ream copper or EMT with these.

Can the cutter be used to cut Romex?

Asked by ab8314 January 6, 2021

Yes, no problems cutting Romeo.

Are they made in the USA like the Kleins?

Asked by St December 12, 2020

The package mine came in says they are made in Taiwan.

Whats are the text and logos on the handle?

Asked by Yin October 26, 2019

Wire sizes and bolt sizes that can be cut with the tool.

The 6-32 screw-cutting hole is also labeled "LOOP" and one of the photos shows the stripped end o...

Asked by Curious June 8, 2018

The picture is as it shows dont over think it this is a multi tool its can be used for multiple things most tools are not limited to one job

Where are these made/assembled?

Asked by JerryCi March 22, 2018

The package that mine came in says they are from Taiwan.

Are they insulated?

Asked by Ryanh3 August 7, 2017

They are insulated but supposedly not against electrical shock. I have used them many times cutting hot wires, just keep your fingers/hands off the metal and never cut more than one wire at a time.

Can I exchange the old ones for this improved model. the clips broke and my cutters don't stay closed

Asked by ben February 14, 2017

Yeah I heard depot will replace

Do these have a crimper on them for fork or spade terminals? I cant tell by the picture

Asked by JLynn October 27, 2016

no they do not

Hello, this is Natalie with Milwaukee Tool. Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. We're sorry to hear that your 7.75 in. Combination Electricians 6-in-1 Wire Strippers Pliers did not quite match your expectations, and would value the opportunity to look into this and provide you with support. Please feel free to reach out to us directly at socialmedia@milwaukeetool.com. Thank You
Really great multi use wire strippers!!
I don’t do a whole lot of electrical work, but these pliers have covered all the electrical work I have done so far. The wire strippers work great, cutting wires are easy, and being that they are also pliers I have used them for non-electrical related applications as well.

Milwaukee Electrical Pliers
I've had these pliers for a few months now and I'm a big fan - I'm not an electrician but got these for adding new drops and lights in my shop. These are very comfortable to use, they strip wire well without leaving scoring marks on the core of of the wire, they function well as needle-nose pliers, and they cut wire well. I've cut 14/2 and 12/2 romex with these with little effort. Now that I'm done wiring new drops (for now) I keep this in my hand tool bag for doing punch list tasks in our house we are renovating. All in all this is a great hand tool, does its job well, and is quite comfortable

Very instinctive features
I’ve had these about a year now getting medium light use because I am mostly retired. They are very instinctive to use. You can easily grab a wire or some small object, cutter is in the right place for quick cuts. The over lap cutting blades do nick up a little because the edges are a bit thin and sharp, but I was able to easily dress them up if needed. The strippers are also very good, but sharp, so don’t get any skin in there.. As for comparing to the other big name strips they hold their own place, I like using the big K too. All good, I’ll give them a five!

Very well made tool. It feels good in the hand, cuts and strips as I’d expect. The grips look like they’ll hold up well in the long run. I got this with other Milwaukee tools in the HD special $20 off $100. Great gift item. Made in Taiwan.
Poor quality control
I thought these would be a nice heavy duty alternative. I am very disappointed. The pivot is so sloppy that the cutters will not bypass at times preventing them from closing all the way. Because of this they don't do a very good job of stripping either. The screw cutters will only cut ¼" or longer, an unfortunate result of the heavy duty design.
by PMdoit
Good Construction
Ive been using theses wire strippers for the past 6 months in pretty heavy use conditions all with no issues . The tool is very well constructed with all moving parts remaining tight and functional. The wire striping gauges on the tool seem to be accurate when stripping wire there is never a 2nd take at it removes 1st pull. The threaded holes on the tool work very well to cut, then clean the treads back up on screws that need trimmed (used often for triming outlet screws on shallow receptacle boxes) the only complaint I would have with the tool would be not having the ability to crimp butt splice couplings i do need that function from time to time and would be a nice added feature.

I've upgraded to these. I REALLY like the feel of them I almost didnt by these because I dont like the spring action, but I'm sold now. I like using these to work with repair low voltage wires. Why is there NO crimper? All the basic ones have them
