    Is this all I need to run my own cables?
    stripper, crimper.
    I would like to redo my cable and Dish lines with better cable and connectors, will these tools work with most coax cable and crimp connectors?
    Thanks
    Greg

    Greg,
    I’m not a fan of cheapie RF crimpers, but the one you’ve chosen looks pretty good for the price. Keep in mind that it will not work with RG-6QS, although that shouldn’t be a problem.
    If any of your new connections are outdoors, I suggest using this weather boot from Radio Shack.
    Regards,

    Greg,
    You can also buy a set of dies for RJ11/45 (check the dropdown menu on the crimper page and look for the #360-048 REPLACEMENT DIE) and you'll be set for network/phone cabling as well. Those dies are incredibly cheap as the set I purchased at Fry's was around $35.

    So Ted, how exactly do the metal oxide resistors work with the crimper jaws? [​IMG]

    Sorry about that guys, I don't even know how that resistor came up with a simple cut and paste.
    Correct link:

    The other dies for crimping insulated and non-insulated terminals could definitely come in handy.
    Plus it has been known that this crimper frame will accept the Canare dies, in case you ever go to making Canare cables.
