Where can I get this cable?

#3
Thanks for the reply. I noticed the cable I'm looking for,
the pin hole's size are different, 1 is smaller than the other.

The one from .americanradiosupply.com seems similar in size.

find an electrician. I bet you can duplicate the cable for about $10 and the manufacturer wants over $100 for the same thing.
I am curious, what is your idea of how much an electrician would charge for a visit, and where would you find an electrician who knows where to find such connector? Electricians run wiring for houses, not wiring for tennis equipment.

You call an electrician, he will come, charge you $70 to $100 for a visit, and will say that sorry, he has no idea, but you have to pay his travel charge anyways.

Also, how do you know that the manufacturer would want over $100 for the same thing? I bet, an average manufacturer would sell a replacement power cord for $25 - $30 shipped.

Don't you have Electrical services stores where you live?

You take your electrical equipment or cables to them and they do the work on the spot or over a few days. Just like going to a Tennis Restringer.

An Electronics Service store or an Auto Electrician might be able to do such work for a low cost.

(I do realise that in this case the Stringing Machine may be large or heavy but that is yet to be ascertained.)

I did not say have an electrician make a house call to your house.
If you could find the equivalent connector online (which I would imagine isnt really a problem)(Radio Shack, before its demise, would have been a convenient brick and mortar option)
Get the connectors (2) for 5 or 10 bucks.
get the equivalent wire for about 5 bucks.
even in small town WV there are guys who are good with a soldering gun (perhaps I shouldnt have said electricians)
bring em the parts, pay em 10-15 bucks to solder the connections and crimp the ends and viola.

I may be soured by an experience I had with my Viking refrigerator.
needed a small fan replaced. The service guy made the mistake of showing it to me before putting it in.
It looked really familiar.
I DIY build PCs for fun.
I went and grabbed one of my $2 at microcenter case fans for comparison.
exactly the same down to the exact same chinese markings on the sticker.

How much did Viking charge me for the fan? $135.00. no, I am not kidding.
