  • connector broken off cable

    Have a full length ridgid 3/8" cable with broken end. On My old k-375 i have a 1/2" general
    on it. Being a welder, I was going to fab My own end a braze on. Is there repair ends for General out there? thanks Tool

      there are and the ones i've used for 3/8'' and 1/2'' general are slip over style. they are socket style and you then tack them on.

      i'm pretty sure they make threaded repair ends, but i've only used the slip on ones.

      i don't think brazing is a good choice as you will soften the spring temper and weaken it.

      i just mig it.

          You can get general ends. they just refer to them as connectors not repair ends. Let me know if you need a part #. Not exactly sure what end you need but most 3/8 ends list for $4.10.

                  I'm sure if you waited 2 months and 17 days to send them, you would still beat General. He11, If I started walking today and walked all the way to your house, from mine, to pick them up, then walked all the way to tools to drop them off, you'd still beat their POS customer service.

                    And that my friend is why I ordered a bag when I first picked up my machine. I no longer have it anymore but I still have the connectors for both it and my old Marco

                          if you can't find them, i know i have them for 3/8'' and 1/2''.

                          i assume you need the front female end? the one with the slot and screw.

                          these are the socket/ cup style that the cable slips into. then you weld them on.

                            Hello Everyone, And is it advisable to "stick" weld a new cable end ? Will that process also de temper the cable?

                              Hi Pmark,I also do welding. I have stick and mig. The mig is so fast I don't think heat would build up. Spot on 2 sides would be good
