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?
