I note Heather's thorough response to your question.  Welcome!

If you ever need a really _good_ crimper, look no further than one of
the Crimpmaster series from Ideal Industries, available at Graybar
Electric Co., Inc.  (http://www.graybar.com/).  I have one with RJ45 and
RJ11 inserts, but haven't ever bought the inserts for any of the co-ax

Graybar is one place the real telco and professional cabling people get
their tools and supplies.  It's difficult to beat their quality, in
general.  Of course, it also might be tough to justify a really good
tool for one-time usage.
