“Whiz Twister” Twists Electrical Wires Together
Invented by a retired electrician, the new Whiz Twister combines a screwdriver with a wire twisting drive tool. The twisting mechanism is inside the handle.
  “It makes twisting electrical wires together a much easier and faster job, producing safe and secure connections. It works great for all your wire twisting needs,” says Merle Robinson.
  The Whiz Twister is designed to twist or untwist up to four no. 12 electrical wires, and can accommodate wire sizes ranging from 10 to 18 ga.
  To twist the wires you first strip about 3/4 in. of insulation off the wires, then insert the wires into holes in the handle and turn. “Steps” in the twisting mechanism accommodate different size wires.
  Once the wires have been twisted together into one wire, you can remove it and then twist on a plastic connector cap.
  “It makes a nice, tight twist and works great for everything from electrical wire for houses to electric fence wire,” says Robinson. “It really comes in handy when you’re doing remodeling and electrical work. It works faster than a pliers and also doesn’t scar the wires like pliers can.”
  The Whiz Twister is available in 2 models. Model WT100 comes with a magnetic bit holder, 1/4-in. nut driver, and interchangeable multiple size bits. It retails for $30. Model WT83593 is a Phillips screwdriver without a magnetic bit holder or nut driver. It retails for $20. Both models can also be used to twist 14, 12, and 10-ga. electric fence wire. They can’t be used to twist phone or speaker wire.
