I can't see where the Smedz cable is manufactured though (nor results of testing)
Any leads to a WF100 version, or even single core WF100, from the same "brand"?
Thanks, I will by the WEbro WF100.Never heard of them.
There was a thread on here about suspect cables that once stripped were found to be made of recycled materials, including toothpaste tubing and chewing gum wrappers.
Make sure you have a company address and a returns policy in writing before ordering/paying anything
Thanks again! I will update you when the job is underway. CheersHere is some info (hope I've covered most things!)
Instructions on how to fit an F-plug
How to fit F Connectors to coaxial cable for Sky and Freesat
You will need:
F-connectors – general
You need ones for 6.8-7mm outside diameter cable (WF/CT100 is 6.8mm)
And I suggest these: F-connector with O-ring but there are numerous others on that site, ebay, etc.,:
NB: suggest you order twice as many as you think you will need!
Cable stripping tools – various dedicated coax cable strippers:
OTOH, I use one of these (and it’s very handy for lots of other jobs):
Stanley Folding Pocket Knife 0 10 598
Spare straight blades for the above:
Pair of sharp side-cutters with blades that have no gaps between them when they close – you may already have these, but they are widely available
A tool to tighten the F-connectors onto the LNB, etc.
I use pliars and a modified open-ended spanner, but the F-connector is a rather unusual size, so here are some dedicated tools:
Self amalgamating tape - widely available from ebay/amazon/your local DIY place, but here is some on the CPC site
Since his final comment in the other thread about how to actually set up a motorised dish at around the same time he started this one, we haven't heard anything at all from him - he came, asked questions and then "disappeared".The thread is about a year and a half old so I would hope that Loquacious is sorted by now!
