Default Bonding Jumper Skinners

The other day we had to run a #4 Cu insulated bonding jumper through 12 bonding bushing lugs continuous. We used the ol' razor knife skin and hack method. I really dont like this at all. You always end up scoring it accidently. I'm trying to improve my hack ways. Is there a tool yet that will skin a 2-3" section (#6-#2/0) of insulated conducter giving it a clean (non scored) appearance ???

Basically, a wire stripper made to cut 3" sections in middle of larger conductors.

I have a cutter that I bought in the early 80's that I think was made for stripping round conductors that would be perfect for this. It has a spring loaded "V" jaw and an adjustable depth cutter. I can't remember what it's called though. You would make 2 cuts with it and one razor cut across the 2 cuts.


Edit: I'm remembering more. It has a blue handle and might be made by Ideal.

This is one of those things that require a little bit of skill. I could understand why you can't handle it.

Found it, Ideal 45-128. Actually no razor needed as you can make the length cut with the cutter on the tool.

another unnecessary tool to add weight to the tool bag, use a sheetrock knife like the rest of us.

I thought using a sheetrock (razorknife) for this task was hack? So, all this time I"ve been doing it the correct way ??
