Tech toolkit recommendations
Ok, so we (BADLY) need to get some tools (crimp tool, testers, screw drivers! cutters/strippers... the usual) where I work at...
I was wondering if any techs/admins here have recommendations for "pre-wrapped" tech toolkits (a one stop shopping kit...)? If you had a link to a online store that would be nice too

Heya...try checking out www.outpost.com It's Fry's Electronics online store. Not the best quality always, but its good to pick up things cheap that will do the job. I'm not sure if they deliver outside the US tho...

I couldn't find one kit that seemed well adapted to meet all needs. In the end I wound up purchasing a couple of seperate kits that had different purposes, ie crimping and cutting line as opposed to line testing.
Most of the items required I was able to find here:
Hope this helps.

I know CompUSA has some pre-packaged toolkits, but like pawn2king said about Fry's, their not really the best quality. If money's not an issue, I would go to Sears and build your own collection with Craftsman tools. They're guaranteed for life, but I have never had a problem. I have a woodshop full of Craftsman tools, so when I wanted something better than my cheap little computer repair kit from DataComm Warehouse, I decided to go with Craftsman. I purchased all of the tools I needed and was using the container from my cheap kit until I found a perfect container in a DataComm Warehouse catalog. They had various packages, with and without tools, so I picked the one I wanted without tools and have been using it ever since (that was about 4 years ago). Check out DataComm Warehouse @ www.warehouse.com They have prepackaged toolkits which are decent quality, though I'd still go for making your own... that way you have what you need/want, and not what you don't.

try www.jensentools.com. They have some really good, but a bit pricey, pre-wrapped toolkits

Blackbox at www.blackbox.com has several pre-configured toolkits available... a bit pricey, but nice kits.
