Cable Tools and Meters

In order to work with cable and wires, you will need some basic tools.

  • Wire/Cable Cutter
  • Crimping Tool to terminate the cables.
  • Barrels and Fittings
  • Signal meter, wand, wire toners
  • Cable in the type you want to work with.

Easy fixes may come up where if you have a few fittings, some cable, and a compression crimping tool, you can complete a repair rather than purchase new equipment or hire someone to do it for you.

While anyone can quickly discover where exposed wire goes to, figuring out which specific wire goes to a room on a multi-floor dwelling  from a mess of cables takes skill and the right tools.
