    I'm about to embark on making my own video cable with Beldens. From what I read it's best to crimp the BNC or RCA (Canare) connectors. Since I'll be making only a couple of these, is there any point in buying a crimping tool (where and how much?) Or can I use alternative means (i.e. with a plier?)

    Thanks!

    If you look at the Canare crimp it is hexagonal which may be hard to form with pliers, also the correct pressure is important.

    I am also making my own component cable (6m). Im thinking of buying Canare RCAP's (Beekeepers thread & Bluejeans web site convinced me) from Canford at 2.99 each. Does any one know anywhere cheaper?
