    A Junior techie? That would be a bit lavish for our place... Can you buy inflatable ones?

    Yes you need a single gang back box that fits in the trunking system you are using.

    Buy Fibre Optic Kits 6955 kit for fibre optic connector 3M 6955 online from RS for next day delivery.

    Fibre kit not a bad price really but that's without any testing or validation equipment, easier to buy pre-terminated fibre tbh.

    I get my stuff from Comms Express:

    Modules
    Faceplates
    Blanking plates
    Back boxes
    Patch panels
    Punch down tool
    Stripper
    Crimp tool (for putting plugs on if making your own patch leads)
    Plugs
    and I do have a nice fluke tester which is worth every penny.

    They also do a starter kit
