Compression Connector help
Posted 08 January 2011 - 04:59 PM
in my new planned SWM system, i have compression connectors. On most of them, the dialectric is not flush (a few milimeters under) with the center ring. Is this really a problem??

Barrels are OK. I have not seen them affect signal in any number (unless water damaged).
FYI, the tools you need to replace fittings are a stripper ($10-15), crimper ($20), and the fittings themselves. Can be found at Home Depot. I see a lot of push-on fittings because ppl don't want to spend $30 on tools lol. Compared to some of the other tools we use, these are a no-brainer, cost wise.
