Can anyone take time from the 2 spaces debate to help with this style

When is it appropriate to use the short form (coax, twinax) versus the long
form (coaxial, twinaxial)? I've seen them both ways, even in the same
bullted list.

To connect a 3600 printer directly to an IBM mainframe, you need:
o a coax adapter card.
o a coaxial cable equivalent to IBM part number #######.

coax/coaxial: coax adapter, coaxial adapter
coax cable, coaxial cable

twinax/twinaxial: twinax adapter, twinaxial adapter
twinax cable, twinaxial cable
