[TowerTalk] LM400 Coax Strippers

I really like the RFA-4087 from RF Parts
(http://www.rfparts.com/coax_accessories.html , under "Coax Strippers and
Prep Tools" toward the bottom of the page). Sells for $48.90 and works with
LMR-400, LMR-400UF, RG8, 213, 214 and 9913 per their catalog. I used mine on
regular LMR400 for a complete antenna installation at my new QTH. Never had
to change the blades. It looks like a cheap-o plastic stripper in the
catalog, but it is die-cast zinc and heavy duty. I have used the Ripley
Cablematic on RG-8 and much prefer the RFA-4087. These are really slick.
Couple one of these with a crimp connector made for the LMR-400 and you have
a solid, quick connection.

    I have been doing a few web searches for LM400 coax strippers and
haven't found much.  There are a few in the $10-20 range, but I am not sure
how well or how long they will work.

    Do any of you have a favorite LM400 coax stripper?  If so, what website
can I find it?
