Hi,

I need to update my toolkit and need to get an F-Plug crimp tool and a cable stripper.

What is a good (low-use) crimper and where from? I take it compression is the way to go now (last I used was a crimp style one)?

Where is the best place to get cable (I only need about 30m) and F Connectors and a Satellite splitter?

Thanks in advance.

I've found both these to be pretty good.

Here's a thread I started a while back on tools, (device is halfway down the page):

In the end I got mine from www.elive.co.nz
