I have a couple of these(just about to get started soldering) and they look easy enough..
I'll be curious to see how these Switchcraft work out with the MDs. They appear to be both too big (in diameter) and too short (in insertion length). The MDs have an jack opening of about 7.9mm. The Neutrik starts out at 8.4mm before trimming. The Switchcraft appear to be closer to10mm. I've made three cables for mine so far and had to trim down the Neutrik right angle to 7.9mm to get a snug fit.
Also, the jack depth on the MD is about 3mm and the collar on this Switchcraft appears to be close to 1.5mm - 2mm. The tip rod on the Neutrik is 1mm longer than the Switchcraft, which helps a bit, also.
If they work without modification that would be great. Please let us know how it turns out.
