Unless you are out to make a lot of phone cords or do telecom work for a living, you shouldn't have to spend a lot of money for a modular plug crimp tool. You can find an inexpensive plastic tool at just about any drug store, dry goods, hardware, grocery, variety retail store or big box store. The better tool is usually glass reinforced plastic with metal blades and will last you for years. I own several along with the expensive professional crimpers. Take a look:

I've seen them in discount stores on the electrical goods aisle. Any hardware store, electronics distributor, electrical supply house should stock the darn things.

Too late now, but Harbor Freight usually has them. Can't speak to the quality, but for only doing a few, durability probably isn't a major concern. I need so few cables these days that I usually just buy premade- my eyes don't see those itty-bitty wires so well any more.
