High fail rate on crimping / pin punch in – RJ11/RJ45 Network and Telephone Cable Crimping Tool with Cable Stripper Reviews

posted by rundkaas on 05/21/2011 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Cheap,
looks and feels sturdy
Cons:
It may only be a issue with my issue, but I have a very high fail rate on the crimping/ punch in. It seems to have a problem with punching in the 2 edge pins (1 and 8).
After comparing with another tool (different make and model) the punch in looks somewhat thinner.
Other:
no one in special
Bottomline:
If you do get it, order more that one in case of manufacturing issues, it's still worth it because of the price, though I wish it was not necessarily.
