so, how are you going to deal with the center pin?  Is that part of the collette design?  That is the main problem I had.

no...not part of the collette design. nick found a bastardized video connector that works fine. that's also why more room is needed in the collette.

yes, these collettes are brass, and we have access to powdercoat

A live concert to me is exciting because of all the electricity that is generated in the crowd and on stage. It's my favorite part of the business, live concerts.

Wow.... Totally off topic but I noticed we hit page 26.  Didn't everything used to blow up at threads once they hit/got past page 25?

Anyway... I'm actively watching the progress of this thread.  I wish I could help but I'm not that handy when it comes to anything more than screwing parts together and hooking up cables.  If there is anything I can do to help let me know.

I have a "yet-to-be-used" mk46 single cable I bought off ebay that I am not presently using since its a single, I can lend it to the experimenters in this thread if necessary, though I will need it back at some point, pm me if it would be of use in the manufacture of the collettes

The recent news that Jon K has been in contact with some of his past clients is encouraging.

Maybe we can get some info from him to get this project back up and running  ???
