Q. What dimensions do I use for crimp style PL-259 connectors?

A. We have a couple of charts that you will find to be very helpful on the types of connectors used with the DXE-UT-KIT-CRIMPDX Engineering Ultra-Grip Crimp Connector Tools and Tool Kits DXE-UT-KIT-CRIMPOne shows the various dies in detail and has a chart for various types of coax and the connectors to be used. This chart can be found here.

There is also another chart available that shows the trimming specs for the various types of coax and also lists all of the connectors with small pictures of each for reference. This one can be found here.

Additionally, the instruction manual that comes with the kit has all the info that is in the above two charts, plus details on using the crimper. It can be found here.
