test cat 5e cable without rj45 connectors?

I have sections of used wire with damage somewhere, but I go through a lot of rj45 connectors when trying to isolate the break.  Is there a way to test Cat5e cable without adding the connectors?

Get yourself a couple of CAT5 extenders - http://www.comtecdirect.co.uk/Structured_Cabling/Adaptors_and_Couplers/Idc_Inline_Connectors_Ultima/

You just need to keep a short lead with RJ45 on one side and punch the cable into the other.
