I know this question has nothing to do with programming cico routers or networking troubshooting. But, I really would like to know the best tool for stripping wiring to make your own rj45 cable ends just in case I'm in a pinch type situation without pre-made cables. Also, does everyone have a preference on the best tool to crimp the ends once you have separated each wire and run them through each terminal cap to finally crimp the wires in place. This is just something I want to purchase as you may never know when you don't have access to pre-made crosser patch cables etc.. Thanks everyone on this forum for any great suggestions.
