    Hi--

    Around 1986 I bought at Radio Shack a little wire stripper for wire wrap
    wire.

    It cost about a dollar and was flat and about 3/4" square. It was
    basically a flat blade somewhat like a razor blade inside a flat metal
    frame.

    Anybody know where I can find something like that nowadays?

    Thanks.

    I have one - it came inside the wirewrap tool handle that I bought from RS
    several years ago. Good luck tracking down another (post WTB here or look
    on eBay?)

    I've always liked these gadgets:

    .... easy for me to say, since the slump has dropped a lot of them in
    the local surplus stores.

    I don't remember its dimensions exactly, but it was flat, and maybe it
    did come bundled with the little manual wire-wrapping tool that I got at
    RS for around $6.

    The handle of the tool I bought is not hollow though.

    Okay, I looked at the online picture of Radio Shack 276-1570, and it
    looks just like the one I bought. Ha ha. I guess I remembered wrong.
    I just pulled off the end of the handle and found the stripper inside
    where it has been hiding for 18 years.

    The stripper is 1/4" x 1/8" x 1 5/8" and as you say is stowed inside the
    handle.

    Thanks!

    The online part number is 242835. Do you have one of these? Is the
    stripper stored inside the hollow handle of the WW tool?

    It looks like jameco is selling something similar to Radio Shack's Part
    #276-1570, but jameco is charging 2-3 times as much.

    I saw a very similar W/W tool with embedded stripper in the Electronics
    Express catalog recently for ~$15.
