Operating Instructions

The IDEAL Pow-R-Master Stripmaster ® Wire Stripper is a hand held,

4. Install the blade retaining screws (29), but do not tighten.

5. Connect the unit to an air source (80 to 125 PSI operating pressure)

using the Hose bard (11) port located on the end of the unit.

WARNING: Never connect an air source with pressure in

excess of 150 PSI. Personal injury or damage to the unit may result.
