I'm curious what would require thermal strippers.  I make up cables for
military applications using 22 awg 19 strand and find the mechanical
strippers work fine for that.

They probably are to EPA and OSHA for production/workplace use. Damn near
everything is these days.

I need to strip maybe 100 wires and cannot tolerate nicked conductors on
#22 (19 strand). A small fan will disperse the fumes.
