I've got a Gardner-Denver (Wire-wrap) 27179 myself, but it's very close to
the SP in design, possibly an OEM version. I love it. Wraps are fast,
solid and consistent. Combined with a good assortment of pre-stripped wire
lengths, it's a least 5x faster than hand wrapping.

I bought my tool on eBay, but without the bit, and they turn out to be
pretty expensive! You really only need a #30 for digital circuits, maybe a
#26 for power buses.

These guys have reasonable prices for both roll and prestripped wire:
