Motorized semi rigid cable stripper Omni Spectra
« on: December 10, 2014, 10:53:16 am »
"They" are cleaning out the storages here, and I see a Omni Spectra/Macom semi rigid cable stripper. Motordriven and with a manual micro meter adjustment. Remember using this 20 years ago :) We are now using micro computer controlled all-singing-and-dancing-do-it-all-stripper  :-DD

Question is if I should pick it up or let it go to scrap?.... Could be handy just for getting a nice "strip" not especially for crimping SMA connectors. But my basement getting filled up with all sorts of useful gadgets  :phew:

Tried to search the web, but seems this one was extinct before the web and left no trace.

it would be great to make a video of it working. like a video museum
overclocked CPU and GPU are a waste of energy and time, it is highly energy + calculation inefficient vs watts. there is an entire influencer industry milking users off it, they call it "premium" but lifespans are short, oxymoronic crap , more like single use.

Aren't there already enough videos of strippers on the web?

I'm with you, if I had the space such an item would be welcome, but on the basis that I would only use it once or twice a year, I'll stick with the sharp knife, a box of blades and rickety pipework.

Edit: I wonder how much those things cost when new?

I've a feeling that the non-motorized version was about £1000 in the early 90s
