plug from ibook/pismo to yo-yo adapter

Message #1 - Posted 2004/09/21 - Jeff McLean

Hello all--

Due to some unfortunate events, I've trashed the plug that goes from yo-yo to the back of my laptop. It broke directly behind the plug, and efforts to re-solder were
not good--not enough wire remained to do so. Attempts
to deconstruct the plug were a little too effective.

Anyway, does anyone have a broken yo-yo that they'd
be willing to clip the plug off with 6" of wire and send me? Generate some good karma, or I could pay a nominal fee, or make you
a nice CD or something? I'm certain my soldering skills are up to the repair if I've just got a little more wire to work with.

Email me or post. Thanks for your time.

Jeff

I've got some spare yo-yo's that are in working condition. My Pismo died so I'm selling stuff off. If you can't find a free solution, ping me off-list and we can talk price, etc.

Later.

'indiana' is a noun. Leave only the noun and .edu after the @ to reply

It's a 1/8" mini phone plug.
