randy is now a cable guy. today he showed me how to make my very own coaxial cable.
here it is, step by step. i have no idea what the pieces or tools are called, so they will all just be called "thingy."
first, cut the cable so that the end is straight.
then use a tool thingy to remove the plastic covering over the wires. this one removes two sections at once.
then, pull back the braided wires that are covering up that other silvery part.
then slip the connector thingy over the wire.
use funny tool thingy to make sure connector goes on to wire all the way and crimps on tightly.
and there you have it, my very own coaxial cable. i feel so manly making my own.
