Hey guys, I found a rather reasonable manual wire stripper for recycling wire. Here is the scoop on it: 'The single most efficient way to recover scrap copper. With the price of salvage copper where it is today it makes sense to recycle your used copper cable and wire. Use our AW1500 Hand wire stripper to make the job easy and fast. This is the tool that everyone in the electrical and salvage industries have been waiting for.' FEATURES Capacity - 14 Gauge up to 1-1/2" Bench or Vice Mount 4" Hand Wheel Fine Thread Adjustment Brass Input Bushings All Steel Locknuts Quick Adjustment tool steel cutter strip any length of wire Self-Guiding 9 Pounds - 18 Inches Tall Adjustment Slots Double as Lubrication for Cutter and V-Roller (Patent Pending) Price: under $500.00 I bought one and will let you know how it works. Maybe someone else has one? We save all of the removed and scrap wire from our jobs and put it in a plastic trash can. When I called the recycler I found out that I can get another 1.00 per pound if it is stripped. Just thought it was a simple way to recoup some waste and such.
