Simple question...
Can I add an F-Type connector to an RG59 cable.
I have a compression tool (but no spare F-type connectors to test with) and have only used it with RG6 cable.

Yip, but you obviously need to have an RG59 F connector. One for RG6 won't work.

Yeah there are different sized F connectors for each cable. So yes it can be done if you buy the right parts, but no, you can't reliably put an RG6 connector on a RG59 sized cable.

In all cases the 'F' part of it is the same size.

Thanks to both of you.
I actually didn't know that there was an F-Type connector for RG59.
I am glad I asked.
