Weller Thermo wire stripper wst 82
« on: March 31, 2021, 05:40:54 pm »
Hi does anyone know if I can use this thermo wire stripper with any weller station rated over 80 watts. I know it can be used with wr2 and other units. EG wr2 is rated at 300 watts. So my thinking was as long as the weller station 80 watts and over it would be ok?

Should work on any Weller station wth the old 5-pin connector and at least 80 Watts.
We used to have one in the workshop for a cable with a fancy braided insulation. Using a cutter to remove the insulation would cause it to unravel several centimeters. This was really the only way to get a decent result. However, using it would cause you to be thrown at with sharp objects. The smell was terrible.
