    That's the one I have - well actually it's painted a different color and I got it on Amazon but it's exactly the same thing. After the first 2 times using it, it's very handy and fast, you have to learn it though, it take some practice, it's not an instant stripper miracle machine - well maybe it is for some but that was my experience. I am glad I have it. Mine came with an extra blade.

    I use it for oven and dryer power plugs and larger internal appliance wires about 12-14 gauge - I don't know what 20mm gauge is either. It would work just fine for smaller wires as well.

    Cheaper on EBay but I bought this one (I had a 10$ credit so I still didn't pay that much) - has an extra blade and wing nuts on the bottom where it mounts to the table - but otherwise same thing:

    20 mm is approximately 3/4 of an inch. So, pretty large as wire goes.
    Have Fun,
