Punch Block

A type of terminal strip, first used by the telephone companies. It uses small, metal, V-shaped terminals into which wire is pressed with a special tool (which is called, amazingly, a “punch-down tool”). The V-shaped groove cuts through the wire insulation to make contact with the wire so that no soldering or stripping is required.
