Re: Carp (anag) design

I'd have hoped that a commercial manufacturer might have spotted it. Perhaps that's why they were cheap. Unfortunately, I'd left +ve feedback on Ebay before noticing.

Coming from what one of my former technicians called the "Dewhurst school of engineering", I used a rather rough bastard file to take the points off for a twelve-sider. It didn't look pretty but worked. Do Dewhurst's still exist?

Yes, I've made cables like that myself. A true D'OH!!! Moment.
Just take a fine file and dress the points of the SMA nut by about half a mm. Then it'll fit through the bnc nut and you can still use a spanner on the SMA

I've just purchased some very nicely made SMA to BNC bulkhead connectors
to mount some kit in a box. The nut for the BNC is behind the fitting.
How do you get the nut off the cable when it's too small to slide over
the SMA?
