I'm new at networking and I want to start making my own network wires/cables for my office. I ordered this crimping tool from [snipped url] (crimper should be here in a few days) and I wanted to learn if there are any other kinds of network cat5 wire crimping tools out there that would work better? [snipped url] is the location for the crimp plires on thier website, those are the ones that I bought. Funny that it says Germany on the handle of the plires but I would gues they are made in China since the company I bought them from is in China. If you know of a name of a certin cat 5 wire crimper that would be better for me to use then please post it here. Thank you :)

[Moderator Note: I read this question as "please suggest good wire crimping tools", which is a legitimate question. However, the inclusion of links in the question also raises flags that this might be spam disguised as a question. If it's not, please accept my apologies, as I took the safe road and removed them anyway. -Narue]

Any crimpers that actually crimp the ends in, will work. The only question is a matter of comfort. Some crimpers demand forearms the size of Popeye's on spinach. Others are called ratcheting crimpers, and take very little effort to get the ends on nice and tight. I suggest the ratcheting type (obviously), but as you might have guessed, those are more expensive. If you are short on cash I would get a cheap pair, then make some decent money with them while building up your grip strength ;) , then buy yourself a nice ratcheting pair.

Happy Crimping!
