"My" attachment is geared for the 75 ohms, cable TV cable with a 1/2" shield 
diameter. The whole cable has a 5/8" outside diameter You can probably use 
something similar but with a different diameter coupling for other sizes. I 
purchased 500 feet of this cable (for $1) on an auction. (Nobody knew what is 
was used for :-).

I will add more pictures to show more details, something I have been asked to 
do (and need to be done for clarity).

Well, they do make female F connectors for anything up to .750, but 
normally it's terminated with pin connectors. The pin connectors though 
are useful as a starting point to transition to UHF.
