Ripley US02-7000 Operating Instructions
  1. Retract the blade to its highest position by turning the blade adjusting knob counterclockwise
  2. Open the tool and locate the cable end at the taper transition on the blade. Secure the cable in the tool (Fig. 2a, 2b)
  3. Turn the blade adjusting knob clockwise until the blade touches the semi-con screen
  4. Set the feed lever into a stripping position. #1 is a conservative feed
  5. Rotate the tool on the cable. As the tool advances on the cable, observe the semi-con chip and re-adjust the blade depth for a minimal thickness of insulation removal and an optimal shaving result
  6. The feed lever can be re-positioned diagonally toward the #2 for a more aggressive feed or fully at the #2 for the fastest feed. The feed can be backed down by moving the lever diagonally toward the Stop position
  7. Observe the shaved semi-con strip during operation. During the shaving process, do not allow the strip to get caught under the cable rollers. This will disturb the shaving result. A convenient technique is to wind the shaved semi-con strip around the tool bar handle while shaving (Fig.3)
  8. Another option is to guide the strip around the shaved insulation using the winding pin. (Fig.4)
  9. After shaving to the desired length, move the feed lever to the stop position. Make one full turn to finish the shaving. Remove the tool from the cable
