Cabling and Building Tools


Automatic Wire Stripper from 0.5mm to 6mm cables. Features a cable cutter and crimp tool for non insulated terminals as well and makes it a multi purpose tool for all kind of cabling work. It can also be used to crimp MC4 connectors but I still prefer the tool below for that kind of work.

Hydraulic Hand Hole Puncher
For diameter of 22.5-61.5mm(1/2″ to 2″) in 3.5mm mild sheet.
Punching Force: 69KN
After cutting many holes with the step-drill or jig saw, I finally invested in a hydraulic hole punch tool. It works great, is clean and easy to use. Not sure if I would trust it with 3.5mm steel though. But 3mm aluminium is certainly not a problem.

Amazing Work Gloves!
I was very sceptical ordering these gloves. The price was very cheap for 12 pairs(!) and some reviews said they are thin and not as strong. Well, since I got them, I use them all the time. Garden work, cutting firewood and also for my electrical work. The sensitivity is amazing and I can do pretty much all work with them. They are also washable and last far longer than I thought. I’m still on my first pair.
They fit like a glove!
