Is there anybody out there who can tell me the actual type of block this is? I'm sure there is somebody who's a lot older than me who will know the answer. 😄

 

My next question once I know the name is whether anybody knows where a punch down tool can be acquired - I've been told that even most Chorus guys don't have one now for these and simply improvise.

The old cross-connect cabinet modules. I'll see if I can find my old tools. Might be details stamped on it, if I can find them.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

I believe it's a 3M 4055, impact insertion tool. Can you wait until Hamilton?
