I'm after a good quality punchdown tool, last one I bought off trademe looked ok, but ended up being rubbish and had to use those cheap $3 plastic ones for most of the work and then some scissors to cut the cables.  

 

Now I'm moving and having to do it again about 100 times, I want a good tool that will be reliable and cut the cables for me.  Up to about $200 I'm prepared to spend on the tool, surely I could get a decent one for that price right?

 

 

 

Anyone have one they can recommend?

I have one of these (Have done for quite a number of years) http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=TOLTC0111&name=Dynamix-110-Punch-Down-Tool---Metal-(Blue-Grey-too

 

Works brilliantly, and the impact force can be dialled back a bit (Useful for punch down frames that don't appreciate a good slam from a punch tool)

 

Cheers

These are my personal favourite. They're made by Hanlong and do with Krone/110 and can be reversed depending on whether you want to cut the wire or not.

You'll probably find them cheaper from a wholesaler or if you know somebody with an account with CDL.

I've used both and I would go with the cheaper.

 

The Dynamix one feels stronger and is nicer to hold, which matters for repetitive use - http://www.pbtech.co.nz/index.php?z=p&p=TOLTC0111&name=Dynamix-110-Punch-Down-Tool---Metal-(Blue-Grey-too

I was hoping to hear a reason to go with the more expensive one ... I don't need another punch down tool, but if there was a compelling reason I'm sure I could find room in my tool kit ;-)

From what I see the more expensive one does 110 and krone but the cheaper only does 110 (systemax)  I'd go for the dual one..

just need it for RJ45 connections, so sounds like just 110 will do, so dont want krone to affect the decision.  now I'm of mixed minds of which one to buy though :)   need a swing vote of someone who has used both :)  End of the day though if I end up buying both its not the end of the world.   Would of been easier if they actual kept them in stock though.... if I buy one thats not that great and discover that while I'm using it, wont be able to get the other one for a few days.    

 

not moving for 7 weeks though, so have some time to try them out though :)
