Coaxial, or coax cable, transmits data, radio frequencies, or video between electronic devices and antennas. Cable and satellite television installers use coax cable, as do amateur and CB radio operators. Some users purchase bulk coax cable from a spool, and fabricate the cable into custom-length cables finished with coax connector ends. Strip the cable's end to your exact dimensions, without damaging the center conductor, before you install a coax connector. Coax cable strippers help make this exacting operation easier.

  • Cable cutters
    • 1

      Cut the end of the coax to be stripped. Cut the cable cleanly and squarely with a pair of cable cutters.

    • 2

      Adjust the slide bar on the stripper's top surface. Set the bar to one size larger than the cable being stripped.

    • 3

      Insert the coax cable's end into the stripper. Rotate the stripper around the cable 10 times.

    • 4

      Adjust the stripper's slide bar to the size of the cable being stripped. Rotate the stripper around the cable an additional 10 times. Prevent damage to the cable's braid by stripping the cable in two steps.

    • 5

      Open the stripper. Remove the cable.

    • 6

      Remove the stripped coax piece by twisting and pulling it off the cable.

    • 7

      Inspect the cable to see if the stripper blades need adjustment. Adjust the blades if your cuts into the coax were not clean, or if the blades penetrated too deeply into the center conductor.

    • 8

      Adjust the blades' depth with the hex wrench in the stripper's handle. Turn the hex inserts clockwise to deepen the cut into the coax. Turn the inserts counter-clockwise to lessen the cut. Adjust one blade depth at a time before you perform another test cut.
