Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from awesome but... before you all get huffy I know all about safety, but as an electrician in the field, most of my days are troubleshooting. Leave the makeup for the kids. Troubleshooting often means everything is live when looking for problems. Working on live wires with a pair of plyers that has an exposed metal can lend for quite a surprise. I love these things except for the single time I took a shock when using them to strip a wire. I am not a big fan of the plastic lock and spring so I removed those. I would recomend them but with a warning about the shock potential. Make a pair with the insulated grips running up the handle further and I will trumpet these from rooftops.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Great pliers but need some redesign These are the best strippers on the market klien needs to take a page out of Milwaukee book here. The needle nose stripper combo is Awesome and the reamer would be great but the hashes are placed in the wrong direction. Also the locking mechanism is great but the plastic is just plastic thus breaking easily and gets weak quickly. I would like to see the same design in the locking mechanism but made from the same metal as the pliers or as strong as. And resolve the file design and turn it into a reaming design. I look forward to buying the updated version of this product it will for sure get s 5 star review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Pretty Beefy Strippers These strippers are amazing. They're beefy, strong and well built. The lack of a "rivet hinge" makes this tool a real winner. I make use of this tool many times every day, even if I don't strip a single wire. The needle nose is very strong and works fine for knockouts and reaming smaller pipe (1/2"). My only issue is the locking mechanism. It's a plastic slide that tends to 'let go' whenever it decides. If you can get used to just leaving them open and unlocked, they'll make a great addition to your tool pouch.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from Best strippers I've used This tool should be standard issue for all electricians. Every pair of wire strippers that I've owned, could be used as needle nose pliars, and this is the only one of them that you can actually use for this purpose. They cut and strip wire as good as Klien, or Greenlee, but the needle nose function is what makes them stand out. The reeming function is nice, although I wouldn't use this tool over a reeming conduit driver, or Linesman Pliars, and the locking mechanism needs improvement. Other than that, this tool is awesome.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous from Innovative yet flawed These are very different from most other wire stripping pliers available on the market. Milwaukee deserves credit for the innovative design and there are several great features that I feel were improved upon as compared with other wire strippers. First, the needle nose can actually be used as a viable needle nose which saved me from carrying around a separate tool. Secondly, these pliers cut 6-32 and 8-32 screws better than any other pair I've owned. Unfortunately, the conduit reamer does not work and, as mentioned in other reviews, the locking mechanism broke fairly soon after purchasing. Also, there are very few times that I can think of in the trade that I would need wire strippers and a pipe reamer at the same time. Because of the broken locking mechanism I have stopped using these and switched to another pair. Milwaukee needs to improve upon design and construction for me to recommend these to a co-worker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous from EXCELLENT!!...but 1 thing :/ The good: These are an amazing pair of wire strippers. As a contractor there are times that I have to slap on the electricians pouch for little things here and there. And what I love about this tool and others from the Hand Tool lune is that it really does what they set out to do, eliminate a pouch full of tools. The one tool replaces full sized needle nose pliers, strippers, cutters, and etc. The bad: The ONLY thing that keeps me from giving this product annoying ct a full five stars is, which seems to be a common complaint, is the locking mechanism. I'm sad to say with it being a Milwaukee tool, this part of it was, well, rather cheap. It's mistakenly made of plastic. And like others described, the plastic loosens and the pliers open themselves. Basically the locking mechanism is weak and we'll, sometimes just doesn't work. It isn't that big of a deal to me, it was annoying at first but the rest of the too got me to compromise. Please Milwaukee, Release a revised version of the tool with the locking problem taken care of. The I am a absolutely proud of owner of many many Milwaukee tools, from the Hand Tools to almost the complete M18 line, including the impressive FUEL tools. Please review!! Still Team Milwaukee!!
