Now that all the wire is pulled and the drywall nearly done I've got a ton of RG6, CAT5 and CAT6 wiring to terminate.
What're the current favorite tools and plugs?
I've got a ratcheting RJ-45 crimper. But I don't have anything for F-type coax. I have a 110/66 block punch tool.
I've also got a couple of 5 conductor mini-coax cables (component video & stereo audio). I'm assuming they're going to need different ends (BNC) but might there be a common tool to attach them and F-types?
I'm probably going to use keystone wall plates, and those will likely support 110-style punchdowns for the CAT5/6 wiring. I'm assuming the coax lines usually just have a female-female barrel through the keystone? So I'd be putting a male on both the end in the Leviton cans in the wiring closet and behind the wall plates out in the rooms, correct?
