I have searched for hours for a distribution panel to split the single line i have coming into the house into like 6-12 plug in type outlets on a single board or panel. the only thing i can find is expensive 4 line in to 24line or more out panels for almost $100 or more or the type that have to be spliced wire by wire in these little wire holding things which for one look untidy and two cant be easily disconnected many times like a plug could be and the wire would eventually get brittle and brake off. Can somebody please help me find what im looking for.... or parts express, can you order these from somewhere or make a request from the people that make the other ones?

Well, your probably not going to find it, the telephone distro panels are professional type things, and professionals like to use the punch down type, its less work than crimping each end on all of them only to find you did it wrong and have to waste ends. Personally i have the PE
and the punch down tool that was DOTD awhile back, Its not that bad, and your not going to be unhooking this thing on a daily basis. its a "do it once" kinda job, with changes being as easy as, pick out wires, put wires , puch wires, repeat. and you can daisy chain them too. if all else fails and you stilll want that end type jack, buy a bunch of wall type jacks like the,
and then you just have to once punch down the 8 wires, wire them up to the jacks and presto!, with the exception that its now probably going to be mounted on a board and pretty gosh darn big. just my 2 cents. take it as you wish.
