So my last crimper that did RJ10 (the tiny phone connector typically used to connect the handset) broke.. It was cheap to begin with. I ordered a replacement one via ebay which is lost.. {eBay is doing this speekpak program now and its a nightmare.. im out the money and the part yet it says delivered its nonsense}.

Does anyone know a domestic location I can order a non-expensive crimper that will do RJ10 connections (preferably without an insert)? Again my primary only goes down to RJ11 and I use it mostly for patch cables.

I am trying to make some replacement Kaypro keyboard cables but without the crimper its impossible.. already went through 8 or 10 end caps.
any help would be appreciated.

What's "cheap"? $13 seems to be about the bottom line here.
