From the mail bag – Once and awhile a package is lost or stolen, it’s rare but when it happens it does give us a chance to go above and beyond for our customers…

My wife & I are flying on Wednesday morning to spend the holidays with her parents. This digital caliper will be her father’s Christmas present. To say that I appreciate the manner in which you expedited the resolution of this problem would be a vast understatement.

I’ve placed a number of orders with Adafruit in the past. Honestly, everything has gone so smoothly I’ve never interacted with your customer support before this order. I can now say that your customer support is just as awesome as the products themselves.

You rock.
Thanks again!

  1. hi @k scharf, thanks for the kind words. here’s what we have on our product page…

    “Great for general usage, we use them for standard 22 AWG solid-core breadboarding wire and 26 AWG stranded ribbon cable, sometimes for other thin wires like thicker wire wrap. They sometimes don’t work so well for 30 AWG – that’s the trade off with the basic tools. If you need precision, high repeatability and extra comfortable rubber grips check out our professional wire strippers from Hakko”

  2. Hi, KS-
    I had exactly the same problem. Fortunately, it is an easy one to solve. (I am assuming you are talking about the 30 – 20 AWG strippers with the little plier tip and orange handles?).
    I used an abrasive disk in my Dremel tool to grind down the jaws of the little pliers at the end of the strippers (very carefully!) untill I got a good strip on my 30 AWG wire. By the way, I hardly use 30AWG WW wire because it is too fragile. 28 AWG is much better for point-to-point wiring.
