30minute 3d model.  3/4" brass rod as stock.

I have some Ideas for the center pin and making the internal electronics serviceable. 

Is it possible to cram the necessary electronics into this type of model, and how long would they need to be?

I am not a 3d/cad artist, first time i have touched a cad app in 10+ years



I just handed your design to a guy in the machine shop at work.  He kind of busy right now, but I am know he will give me a prototype real soon.

He just asked me what the inside diameter for the cable hole should be....

Assuming Belden 1804a would be the choice of cable. 3mm for the inside diameter

Yes, I gave him the specs that Richard had given.

Another thing that is not shown in my model is the retention ring for the internals.  This would be something like a 1mm x 1mm channel at the depth the base of the center pin.  Someone may have to take the measurement from a 480 body to get the exact depth.  The depth is probably somewhere close to where the outside threading ends.

Yes, I gave him the specs that Richard had given.

Just double-checking (and also finally checking in to this thread):  last I saw, Richard had stated M19 threading. After digging around a bit I found that it is M19 - 0.75.  Maybe Richard also posted this and I missed it, but this gives the size and the thread pitch so you might want to pass along the 0.75 pitch part as well if you haven't already.

Still hoping this project comes to fruition one day. :)

well first of all i must apologize to the TS community for my complete lack of courtesy in just plain up and disappearing last year. fortunately/unfortunately people like easyjim have stood up for me and kept people up to date. something that never should have been necessary, but something for which i am very grateful and humbled. esp since i still have a set of jim's 568's to fix.

so just a quick explanation - i've been out of work for 2 years now, my wife for 1. i do have 4 kids (the girls are 14, 14 and 16 so you can guess their needs...) and a mortgage and bills (just like everyone else, but of course i bought my dream boat two weeks before i lost my job and then all of a sudden boats were available for 10cents on the dollar). for me, poverty seems to cause some form of major mental depression and tunnel vision - i just hate being so f-ing broke. drives me nuts. finding money to make the house run falls to me and it wears heavy. my wife just shrugs it off. i just can't seem to...

anyway, i had been focusing on starting a business (electronics related) in january with the akg project able to be a part of that entity. met with my business advisor in early Jan and was told to not even bother trying right now. that had kinda been my plan for the future as far as something to do for a living as well as longterm income for the house. i had been living with that as something real to look forward to and then it was shot down in flames...

i do have some resources coming my way in the next month. so i will be building some prototype pieces.

as to using CKx caps, it has always been my intention to manufacture something to allow owners of these pieces to be used even tho they use a 17mm thread. the one issue i see about basing anything on them is that they are not available often whereas the CK6x series are still in production. the other thing i have planned is the repair of the CKxX caps. they used prepolarized elements that if damaged rendered the capsules useless - like i have 5 CK8X caps that are no good.

so would like to apologize for flaking. i will try to find some time to read back thru this thread and if i can offer anything to anyone trying to move forward i will drop them a line. i am living off my old SCSI windows 3.0 computer and you may have noticed my login has changed slightly - last computer lost a PS and killed my mobo and HD etc etc.

best regards to all, if you have a personal beef write me at nsturtevant1@cox.net and keep it out of the forums. there is no email at the house, i do it remotely at cox, so i don't check it but every other day.

fwiw i still have my sony dmx-p01 mixer available for sale - great condition and a beautiful device.
