    I have an old Holub brand model 18-225 romax wire stripper which is
    fantastic for working with romax. I would like to find one for my son. A
    web search shows up nothing. Anybody have any knowledge of this company?
    Thanks.

    Not really. It shows up on a couple electrical supply house
    listings: http://tinyurl.com/25qwof http://tinyurl.com/25cd9v
    Ebay has a couple listings but not for wire strippers. Nothing on
    Amazon.

    there.

    : ( The stripper is no longer available. This is such a handy item! One
    small tool slices the outer casing and the individual wires inside. I guess
    I need to keep my eyes open at the flea markets.

  5. I guess they need to update their catalog. You could try calling some
    electrical supply companies to see if they still have the tool in their
    inventories. In addition to flea markets check out ads for contractors
    going out of business.

  6. If what you are looking for is a stripper that strips off the outer
    romex jacket, and then can strip the individual wires, Ideal makes
    one:

    I have one I bought at a the borg...works really well. It does 12-2
    w/g and 14-2 w/g.
