Seatek RS-101B Roto-Split
Seatek Company, which pioneered the labor saving rotary tool to cut armored cables has introduced a new model in the Roto-Split line. The made in USA RS-101B is equipped with an exclusive auto clamping feature that does away with fussing with a thumb screw when cutting different sizes of AC/MC cable. Just squeeze the bottom lever & any cable from 14-2 to 10-4 or 3/8" Flex is secured, no adjustment is required! This new patent pending system prevents applying too much force to aluminum casing. Blade penetration is set at the factory to prevent nicking of wires in standard size AC/MC cable.
A few turns of the crank makes a clean slit through armored casing. This takes only a few seconds, simply untwist to strip! Best of all the cable pops out as soon as a cut is completed. Auto-clamping adjusts to the diameter of the cable, no levers or screws to set! You can make cuts in tight quarters by ratcheting the handle back & forth when you're in a tight spot. Ergonomic crank handle is offset for maximum hand clearance, and 6 blades can be stored in the knob. Made in USA, MSRP of the RS-101B is $29.95.
