    For splitting conduit to expose the wires inside. They still make them.

    It's designed to strip the end of armored electric

    cable. Then you attach a cable connecter, very

    similar to a romex connector for NMB wire.

    That forces the conduit onto the blade. Eh... Give it a whirl.

    What you have is a basic unit, I've used one dozens of times.

    As long as the blade has teeth, it will be fine. If the teeth wear out,

    go to your local electrical supplier. They have new blades.
