Amateur telephone guys strip insulation off wires; but real phone geeks
CRUSH the insulation, and then slickly slide it off.
You, too, can crush like the pros, with our developed-for-the-Bell-System
long nose crushing
pliers made by the tool wizards at Jonard -- the biggest maker of
telecom pliers in the US. It's a big time-saver when you're installing jacks or
other hardware with screw terminals, because you don't have to stop to look for
the tiny stripping hole; and there's no chance of cutting into the fragile
copper. The narrow blades fit into tight spaces, but have much more strength
than needle nose tools.
The gentleman in the photograph on the right is Reggie "Crusher" Lisowski, the wrestler who made Milwaukee famous.

The young lady to the left of Mr. Lisowski is Sandra Church from original Broadway production of Gypsy, in 1959. (Photo from PhotoFest.)
