James writes: “This cabler ripper was recommended to me by a guy who spend 15 years doing electrical work for the Navy. I believe his exact words were, ‘You have to get one of these.’ He was right.” (For the non-electricians out there, this tool is used to split open Romex and other large wire.)
James did his best to dig this out of the Gardner Bender site for us, and we truly appreciate the effort. The GB site majorly sucks in that it’s damn near impossible to find anything specific — and once you do they have no photographs or extended descriptions. They do offer a PDF catalog, if you’re willing to download it all and page through it. (You’ll notice that I’m going to link to Lowe’s rather than the corporate site. If you’d like to find this tool on the corporate site, James recommends looking under “hand tools” in the “catalog” section. Good hunting.)
The good news: it’s under $2 at Lowe’s, which means you should be able to find it pretty much anywhere.
