Ok i just recently bought myself a crimping tool to crimp some CAT5 cables with the connectors, now i am kind of practicing here until I get better at it. Now I have tried to do it on my own but so far none of the cables I did actually work so I dont know what I am doing wrong. This is what I am doing.. I first strip the outer cat5 cable about 1/2 off the jacket, then I untwist the wires and arrange them properly, but first how do I make a even cut of the wires? I know you have to make them all even so when they go in the connector they all can hit the connector but I cant seem to make a straight cut, but moving on after that I put them in the connector and crimp it and thats it, but the ones I did dont work.. do you think maybe its because I didnt make an even cut?
