Really? Not that helpful possibly?
Is it just another toothless post? :o

Bought them on your advice Brian. Excellent for stripping back bus wire insulation in the middle of a length.

Yes, these are excellent. I have the Stanley version from Screwfix, just the same except they are yellow.
Many times the wrong train took me to the right place.

I've got the yellow Screwfix version too but found them OK on bigger wires but not so on the very small wires like those used in DCC decoders. I got a pair of the DCC Concepts ones at Christmas but have gone back to my trusty adjustable ones from my emplyees tool kit, over 40 years old!

I too used to use my teeth on ocassions but barely got enough teeth left to chew my food now!
Most people are shocked when they find out how bad I am as an electrician
