Just bought the compression plugs, never done this before. I've soldered the end of the plug but when I put my multi meter on it to test it I'm getting a reading on both the outer and inner pin and a reading on the outer and inner at the same time which I don't think is right if that makes sense. Anyone any pictures of the process step by step please
