You know, the problem I often have with this technique is that I cannot
put the connector barrel on to the RG-213 if there's too much tinning.
The coax tends to twist and distort, and I can't really grab it with
pliers without damaging it.
So, what's the best way to put a PL-259 connector on? How do you hold to
coax still while rotating the connector barrel?
