1/4" Headphone Jack cover - Page 5

post #61 of 89

 

Well hell.

 

Our carrier arrived today empty handed.

 

I called my machinist and he said it took him a bit longer than he'd thought to deburr the saw cut. Said they'll go out on Monday which means I'll get them Tuesday.

 

Sorry guys.

That's pretty jacked up.  It's okay though, I'm sure you've got us covered.

You can get your popcorn out now. My machinist called yesterday saying he was headed down to the post office to send out the plugs. Usually takes just a day to get from there (Grass Valley) to here (Sacramento).

How were you planning to sell these - sort of like a group buy here on the forum, or on your website?

Since this is a strictly not-for-profit project for the HeadFi community, it wouldn't be right to direct people to my website to buy them. So let's just keep it here on the forum.

Ok, we got plugs!

 

They look fantastic.

 

Tried one out in half a dozen different jacks I have around here. The loosest fit is in the Neutrik locking jacks. Though they're not so loose they'll fall out on their own. And if they were made any larger, I think it would be rather difficult to get them into some other jacks out there. So I think we're about as "Goldilocks" as we can get.

 

Gotta break for dinner but I'll try and get a photo a bit later.

After you've clicked on the image and brought it up in the viewer, right click on the image and select your browser's equivalent of "view image" to see it full size. The forum software still sizes it smaller than the original even when you click on it.

Im assuming the bigger part goes inside? if you can take a pict of them in a jack, that would be perfect

No, the smaller part goes inside. It has a bulbous tip with a diameter larger than the jack, and a saw cut down the middle of it to allow it to compress down to the size of the jack which provides the gripping force.

I'll try. But I don't know if Jack's gonna like it.

Amplifier component part pr0n! Rule 34 strikes again!

It's actually a really bloody neat idea, and beautifully simple at that. I'm definitely up for a couple when ordering opens up.

Any thoughts for making some 1/8" versions of the plug?
