DATACENTER: Making LOTS of custom patch cables.

This summer and fall, we are going to be upgrading our entire network to
100MB to the desktop. As a part of this upgrade we are going to be
redoing existing patch panels and installing entirely new ones. To keep
things looking nice, we want to cut each patch cable to the exact length
required. We find that our cabinets look a LOT nicer if there are no
loops of slack cable laying around.

There are a couple of us that are relatively proficient in making patch
cables with the standard pliers-type crimpers. However, as fast as we
are it's still going to be a very tedious job. So to speed things up we
are hoping to find some sort of machine that can make up patch cables
faster than we can by hand.  We're willing to spend up to US$10,000 or
so on a solution.

Can anyone recommend products that will solve our problem?
