Hi is there anyone in Dunedin that can lend me their crimping tool and perhaps sell me an RJ45 head at wholesale? Thanks

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Have you done much crimping before?

If you're only after one connector, I can probably come and do it for you if you like

Thanks very much for your offer. I have never done it, but I have watched a few youtube videos (no not trying to be cocky). And got some tips from the Chorus guy who offered the use of his crimper but claims he has no rj45 head.

I've ordered on the cheap from aliexpress so I should be able to return a head once i get them (i presume all heads are the same!)

My wire is about 10m too long and needs to be dragged and drilled into another room so I might have a lot of chances in it. Would you mind it I gave it a go?

Thanks everyone I thought I'd exercise patience, the set (ordered in 3 bits) arrived from China, cost less than $10, and now I have successfully wired the jack!
