I see there is a pair of brass cable connectors on ebay for $105.00. Well I thought I would try to make them and they turned out really nice. I used a piece of flat steel stock, cut a piece with a hacksaw,drilled a small hole just big enough for a very small file and went to work. Once I had the hole fit to the shaft which turns the connector I the started grinding and shaping the piece. That done, I drilled the hole for the pin I made out of round steel stock. As I mentioned above, they really turned out nice and are much stronger than pot metal or brass. Also, if I can do it anyone can.
