@dekay I first used strippers like that at Fermilab when I worked there in the 70s. Didn't know they still made them. Yellow handle and all. Get them set up correctly and you can't beat them.
Yes, they are the sweet spot for solid core and even stranded (if the insulation is somewhat easy to strip and once properly graduated).
They did the job when I used them to strip Canare 4S11 (just lost a few stands with 16 strips) but it was a painful experience.
I also successfully used them with various Kimber bulk cable years ago.
Hoping that the one's Chris rec'd will be kindler/gentler when I revisit the Canare to add connectors (want fresh/clean ends for that).
I didn't gather from the pics that Big's cable has 48 insulated wires (found out when I reviewed his link) and can only imagine the sense of accomplishment involved with stripping 192 wires for a stereo pair.
I also saved his "link" to the bare 92% copper connectors/spades as they also interest me, but I do not own a crimping tool (don't know what's good/OK/waste of time).
I have a couple of copper bearing solders from Chimera Labs and another source which might be interesting to try.
@dekay Any standard wire stripping tool has the crimping feature built in. On the link to the spades, click on the install instructions and you'll see a pair. You use the grove for 10 - 12 AWG. It does not take much pressure to put a solid crimp in these spades. At $5 a pair, order an extra set for trial.
