connector plug
« on: June 02, 2018, 06:08:44 AM »
After receiving recommendation from Zax to get power for my fan addition from the laser, I'm looking at the 3 wire connector and thinking it would be easiest to get a new plastic connector and the female bits inside and build a new plug with 5 wires: 3 to the laser and 2 to the fan.  My question what are the plastic pieces and the female inserts called and where are they sourced?  Of course I'm assuming that the female inserts are removable like most plug connector assemblies are.
Much work remains to be done before we can announce our total failure to make any progress.

It's a chemical laser but in solid, not gaseous, form. Put simply, in deference to you Kent, it's like lasing a stick of dynamite.
