Is it possible to unscrew a lemo FGG.0B connector?? I've tried to, but it seems quite fixed and I don't want to use too much force on it.
I'm pretty sure this is very simple with the Fischer connectors, but does it also work with the lemos??

If you're talking about unscrewing the cable collet to disassemble the connector, yes, it can be done. It's possible that someone may have put locktight or glue on it. The collet unscrews from the where the cable enters the back of the assembly. A set of needle nose pliers work pretty well.

The Collet will unscrew but some manufacturers use lock tight on the threads. Try to safely heat up the collet to melt the lock tight (taking care not to burn the cable)
