Re: 3.5mm connector for SD24 sampling head...
Hi Reg,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The flat cylinder of the nose (that comes just before the thread), has
been smashed almost flat on one side. The mating surfaces (inside of
the connector), appear to be ok, to my calibrated eye.
I have thought about making a little rotary tool that would roll around
the outside edge, and roll the smashed edge back to the proper shape,
as it is pretty soft metal, but I fear that I will spend more time than
the plugin is worth, and destroy the needed accuracy of the APC 3.5mm
It would seem better to find someone that has an electrically damaged
head that has a good connector, and work out a trade for the connector.
I, of course, have no idea what I will find when I try to replace the
connector. I don't have a clue how it is terminated on the circuit
board... probably the success of such a swap is highly improbable.

How extensive is the damage? If it's just the thread, a fine triangular needle file will fix that.
