The Model L1 Bench Wire Stripper removes film insulations including enamel, Formvar, ML, armored poly-thermaleze, epoxy, and more from round wires 29 to 13 AWG. A high-speed rotating insert strips insulation from the surface of the wire. Close-up stripping is possible flush to a coil body or bobbin. Model L1 can also be used for other applications such as deflashing wires, cleaning legs of electronic components, and cleaning pins on transformers and coils. The unit may also be used to clean wire wrap sockets, DIP sockets, and relay sockets. The L1 can also remove oxidation, flashing, epoxy, and even contaminated solder.
