In the process of building tool kit for PC repair and networking. Anyone have some advice on good quality toner and probe, punch down tool and Rj45 crimper? I'm also looking for good Cat5 wire stripper. I bought a toner and probe at Lowe's and it hasn't performed very well, i have hard time finding the line in question. If you could also ,  suggest a website, it would be well appreciated. Thanks.
