female N connector wont accept pl259 center pin unless forced and most likely broken. considerable size difference of center pinsAre you sure it's a UHF connector (PL-259, SO-239) and not an N connector? The pin on a UHF male plug will appear to be very tight in a female N connector.
This, in fact, can be a common problem in agencies where both types of connectors are used. The male UHF will start on a female N and, since the threads are similar, the UHF can be easily tightened down on the N. This totally destroys the N female, of course, resulting in an expensive fix.female N connector wont accept pl259 center pin unless forced and most likely broken. considerable size difference of center pins
Yes, their is a conductive grease. It has metal particles in the grease and you screw in until those contact both surfaces with the grease holding them providing a seal. Such grease should match the metal in the particles with those of the surfaces inforder not to cause problems. Google "conductive grease".Would dialectic grease insulate the surfaces from one another? Is there a conductive "electric" grease?
You can sometimes find a 5/98-24 die on Ebay cheap.
Now that’s an odd size die
5/98 ths of an inch? That'd be about 0.051 of an inch. I think you meant 5/8 of an inch (0.625 of an inch).Not really, its the same size as the threads on many RF connectors, microphone stands and lots of other doo dahs.
