    Was hoping someone could tell me the dimension of each cut to the end of the wire when stripping coax for the canare crimp-on RCA connectors.

    Dimensions needed:

    Length of center conductor to dieelectric

    Length of dieelectric to Braided Shielding

    Length of Braided Shielding to the Jacket

    Any assisatnce is appreciated

    Thanks,

    It was this site that inspired me to createmy own cables. However, these cables can be constructed using the Radio Shack crimpers and strippers. I just need to know how much material to strip away.

    Someone who has these strippers, please strip some cable for me and grab a ruler.

    Thanks
