| Bix punchdown tools. BIX 16a (broken cutter blade)|
|Are these blades repairable? I've been out of the telcom/networking biz for a little while now, but I still maintain a bix-block cross connect in my house (for my servers and phones...what can I say, I'm still a gear head)...and I do pick up the occasional small contracting job...|
I can use my Bix tool as-is, but I'd really like to have a functioning cutter on it. Is this worth trying to fix? Or should I get a new one, and where do I get one?...or would I be further ahead to get a bix blade for my greenlee type punchdown tool, (removeable blade tool, usually comes with 110's and 66's)..and where do I find those?

I doubt seriously that the blade is repairable. Usually you would just buy a new one for about $25. I checked with an online supplier we usually recommend, MicroWarehouse.com, but they do not stock Greenlee. The only source I came up with was here: Telephonestuff.com. It was a bit pricey though, but that seemed to be the part you need.
