Wire cutter, wire stripper
The Katapult wire stripper and cutter cuts 8-22 AWG wire with a tension-loaded wire-grip, and can be used in settings where multiple wire sizes and types are present.
The Katapult wire stripper now has a built-in wire cutter. The Katapult Wire Stripper/Cutter strips and cuts 8-22 AWG wire. Precision-machined stripping holes easily remove up to 1” of insulation in a single step without damaging the wire. The tension-loaded wire-grip gently holds the cable while retaining cable geometry. This tool is especially useful in panels and other places where multiple wire sizes/types are present. The tensioning knob easily adjusts to apply the correct amount of force on the wire and an adjustable stopper controls the length of the core strip. It also features a convenient wire cutter built into the handle.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
