JCST-QR Jacket Coring Stripping Tool

The Cablematic Jacket Coring Stripping Tool simultaneously strips the jacket, cores the dielectric, strips the aluminum sheath and trims the conductor to the proper length in one fast and precise operation.

It has been specifically designed for the following cables:

  • CommScope® Quantum Reach® (QR)
  • Times Fiber Communications (TFC) TX10
  • Alcatel Cable Benelux–ACE/ACW

NOTE: It is not recommended for use on flooded cable (see QRT model)

The JCST-QR can be used manually or with a drill; JCST tools have a standard “T” handle with a built-in 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) drill adapter; JCST-R tools have a ratchet “T” handle and a separate 3/8 in. (9.5 mm) drill adapter.

The Heat treated, sheath cutting blade produces a smooth beveled edge and can be changed without the expense of replacing the entire coring bit and a preset jacket blade assures there is no scoring or nicking of the aluminum sheath.

Using CC-100, CC-200 or CC-200EUR Center Conductor Cleaner/Scraper removes residual dielectric which remains on the conductor.

  • Rugged, durable all-metal construction
  • Made in the U.S.A.
