This invention relates generally to‘ an, elec
trician’s tool and in particular relates to, and
it is my principal object to provide, an .elec
trician’s tool designed‘to facilitate "the removal
of the covering and insulation fromrelectric Wire

sides 5 ofnthe case. Rearward- of‘ thehead,
the case isz‘separated by a partition >6,’the tool
bar there being of such width as to normally
rest between: the partition and one wall 5 of
the case. If desired; a short screw driver‘ ‘I may

Letters Patent is:
An electrieian’s tool comprising a case having
spaced sidesifa tool bar pivoted in the case at one
endiifor movement in and out of thesamegthe
upper edges of the case adjacent the oppositei‘end 25
having matching notches forming a cradle for?the
reception of a covered and insulateo'gwire, a cut
ting head mounted on the euter end of the bar,
said’ head having a passage therethrough from
the'edge adjacent the cradle to'the opposite edge,
the sides oi the head being notched to engage
over awire' on the'tcradle, a cutting blade, and
means mounting said blade on the'head with the I
cutting edge thereof in. position betweenrlsaid
the wire-is placedrthreugh holes 20, the tool bar
sides of the head and adjacent the passage,
lowerged;v and the tool then rotated about the
whereby with relative rotation between the tool
and wire on the cradle and engaged by the head,
wire, illustrated in Fig. 5 as 0. Cutting edge 22
- cuts through the covering and insulation but
does not cut the wire due to its con?guration and
may?oe resorted to as do not form a departir
fromthe'spirit of the invention, as deiiined by the ,
termination short oi'the center of holes 20. When
the cutting blade will cut away the covering and
insulation of the adjacent portion of wire.
