    Anyone know where I can get Krone-type IDC punch that lasts a bit longer then the crappy plastic ones? I'm sick them breaking in my hands.

    Can't find any on Ebay, elara, misco etc etc.

    If you are breaking that tool then you must be pressing too hard or something.

    Bit pricy from that source but Radionics.ie?

    You'd have to give them a fair hammering to have them break in your hand.

    How in gods name did you manage to snap one of them? I've been using the same one for the last 3 years?

    Lads, that was a month and a half ago. I've since managed to extricate myself from the dark hole of depression it caused and found a way to get on with my life.

    How did I break it? I dunno, just bent the end of it. It's not like they're made of a Molybdenum alloy.

    All done anyway, house cabled, panel punched and netpoints...pointed. Let's all move on.
