Does anyone have one of the patch cables, and can they measure the diameter
of the pin and it's length?
Also, is it a straight pin or like a bannana jack with springy sides?
There is a company www.mill-max.com that makes almost any type of
pin/socket that you can think of -
take a look thru their con-line catalog.
