Cheap supplier of patch panels/rack mount gear?

    Since I am slowly acquiring gear to work towards CCNA, and eventually
    (very eventually) CCNP/CCIE I've decided to set up a small 19" rack to
    hold the gear. However, to keep everything nicely accessible I need get
    hold of a small patch panel (12+ ports) and punch down tool, and all the
    various accessories needed to install and manage a small rack.

    I've found cablemax.co.nz, but it never hurts to shop around.

    Can anybody suggest other good sources that sell to the general public,
    at reasonable prices?

    TIA

    Cheers trouser, they sell the same gear as cable max, but the prices
    were higher on all the items I checked so cablemax won that round.

    They are really only a trade supplier but they have EFTPOS and will sell
    stuff at a reasonable price to end users. Just remember that when
    they mention a price it will be GST exclusive. Going there always
    reminds me of Statler and Waldorf - you'll understand after you've been.
