1) Can rj45 connectors be reused or are the a one shot deal once crimped?

2) What are the chances of a short in a handmade cable being in the connector vs somewhere in the wire?

1) they are a one time shot. I haven't seen any reusable connectors

2) There is a good chance of a that depending how you went about taking of the outside of the cable. Personally I carefully use a pocket knife so I do not nick the wires. I tried the thing on the crimper but that sometimes let to cutting the insulation, or nicks and the wire braking when wiggling them into the connector
