I just got my belden 7787a bundled coax, a stripper, and a crimpter in today. I bought a little extra wire to practice with. I've never done this before so i'm not sure what is supposed to be stripped and what is not. I'm connecting this to a one piece crimp style bnc connector. When I strip the wire, most of the braid seems to get stripped off too. Is this a problem? The aluminum under the braid stays intact. I haven't tried to crimp yet, just slid the wire on the connector. It seems to go on ok. I'm just concerned about all the braid getting stripped too. I've got the blade on the lowest setting, but it still clips about half the braid away. Any tips here? I've done a ton of searches to see how to do this properly, but no luck as of yet.
