Radio Shack Wire-Wrapping Tool

The OK-Tool cut-strip-n-wrap bit was not highly regarded back in the mid
'80's, when it was offered via magazine ads. I never tried one since I had
a couple of the Gardner-Denver wire-wrap guns, each with a cut-strip-wrap
bit back then, and, though the battery packs are damaged and the associated
battery-powered tool doesn't work any more, the AC-powered gun still works
great, including the cut-strip-wrp bits.
