connectors and crimping tool can be purchased at RAE electronics in
Burnside. They now have a minimum purchase of $10, but the crimper is $40,
easy. maybe more. Home Depot may have similar, but you might have to buy
a box of connectors. Do the job right, and terminate in a junction box,
with a female socket (also from Home Depot). I've never had a problem with
home-crimped cat5. Of course, I have had to re-do ones that I don't get
right the first time, which is a little annoying. But the connectors (male
plugs) are pretty cheap at RAE, and the female connectors can be re-wired
if you get them wrong
