That stinks...  I have been making cables for 35 years.  Always do them by hand with a straight razor.  Make sure its sharp so you need minimal pressure and you will never cut the shield or center lead by mistake. 


The only time I use a tool is when I strip very thin cables that I can hold with needle nose pliers and wire strippers like the one in the picture.  And I don't bother setting the guide stop.  Again, just make sure they are sharp and use light pressure to squeeze and twist and you are good to go.
