Re: Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?

Yeah, don't know why RG-6 and RG-59 are much cheaper than RG-8, RG-58, RG-174. Saw a couple for the 75 ohm cables cheap but the 50? No idea why...

Then again, with people "cord cutting," 75-ohm...

Re: Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?

In all these cases, the center pin is not a problem with ad hoc tools or even solder if it comes down to it (unless the connector was designed to be soldered, then your choices are limited.) The...

Re: Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?

BNC crimp, N crimp, PL-259 crimp, whatever - they all use the same collar when dealing with crimps - depending on the cable!

I don't think terminal blocks come with crimps and the SWR would be...

Re: Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?

Yeah, most of the screw on connectors cost $ARM$LEG. Grr.

On the other hand, I thought the RG59 compression connectors were really consistent (because so many are made/used, they had to get it...

Re: Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?

Well depends on the type, yes, the RG6/RG59 ones I've seen are indeed single use and hence useless... Likewise the compression tool...

Re: Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?

The center pin can be soldered for me, no problems with that. I just wonder if it's possible to cheat crimping the main connector. Sounds like I have to get a crimp tool.... ugh.

Mainly because...

Crimping crimp-on RG58, RG174, etc. connectors without die?
