    If you haven't got the special crimping tool, it isn't worth the hassle.

    It will cost you almost as much to buy the cable and connectors as it would cost to buy ready made cables, and with the crimping tool on top you will certainly be losing out. It is only worth it if you are going to be making a LOT of cables.

    In any case, you may find it difficult to buy cat5 cable at a reasonable price without buying a full reel.

    You can buy a 30 meter cable, non cross for 20 or so (20 = about 30pounds...)
