I found and old thread on this forum regarding the Belden 1505F coaxial cable. I just ordered the Canare RCAP-C42 RCA plug and it should be here in about a week or two. I don't see that thread mentioned any crimping tool to terminate the cable. This is a one time use so I was wondering what are my options to terminate this cable using the Canare RCAP-C42 RCA plug. If I have to use a crimping tool to make my life easier, what are some cheap ones that I can purchase? I have searched videos on YouTube but found no videos regarding the Belden 1505F coaxial cable with Canare RCAP-C42 RCA plug terminator. Any help is much appreciated.
