I've been using my C.K automatic strippers for a year now, and I really like them. They are really easy to use, so I recommend you have a look at them. I bought mine from Screwfix.

I have a cheap ebay version of the CK automatic ones.
I really like them, If I were using them every day I'd probably buy a better pair, but these only cost £5 delivered.

Worth every penny in the time saved, and they give a neater more consistent result than nibbling with the side cutters and pulling the earth like a cheese wire, which is what I always used to do.
