I was making up a bunch of cables with PL-259 connectors and it occurred to me that there MUST be a spiffy way to pull the polyethylene or whatever insulation off the center conductor. I've been doing this for a long, long time and it remains the one aspect of the job that drives me nuts.
Any advice??

With some modifications, I'm generally with Bill's technique...except the part about using ordinary wire strippers to *shrug* peel away the center conductor covering. I defy anyone to just slide it off...that's the part that irritates me.

Incidentally, that center conductor, with said covering makes a reasonable substitute for GTO-15 . It isn't long term UV protected, but it has comparable or superior insulation qualities/

Anyway, comments are appreciated, many thanks.
