The Amazing Blade Runner
New SWA Stripper
It is well known that working with SWA can be time consuming and laborious. Cutting steel wire with a sharp hacksaw is not easy and getting that final result perfectly straight, right round the circumference of the cable, can be even more difficult.
Kew Technik now offers an amazing easy to use and sensibly priced new tool that will give complete confidence in the knowledge that a perfectly straight cut with no ragged edges will render the cable ready for safe termination to glands or fittings in no time at all.
Blade Runner will cut the outer sheath of SWA cable up to 28mm in diameter, then uniformly score the SWA strands which protect the inner conductors from damage guaranteeing a fast, accurate, 'straight cut'. Just offer the cable up to the tool, turn the thumbscrew onto the cable until it is relatively tight and spin Blade Runner around the circumference of the cable in the direction of the arrow on the tool, tightening occasionally as it cuts through the sheath and then scores the steel wire
Once the steel wire is scored, the tool is removed and the PVC sheath is either pulled off the end of the cable or is carefully cut off using a knife. Then the scored steel wires can be removed by taking several at a time, and working back and forth until they snap off.
Finally, using Blade Runner, cut through only the sheath and remove leaving the stripped and prepared cable ready for termination.
The blade provided in the tool is good for 100 terminations and can be easily replaced in less than a minute using a screwdriver. Each tool comes with one spare blade, with further blades available in packs of three.
