  1. I need to get those connectors used in a bench supply... I'm not sure what
    there called but I think it has something to do with a bannana ;) Radio
    shack wants about 3$ for 2 connectors and another 3$ for 2 jacks... since I
    need about 8 pairs each thats about 2*8*3 = 48$ just for the damn
    connectors... knowing that radio shack runs anywhere from 100% to 1000%
    overpriced surely there is a better place to get these...(I recently brought
    a varistor there for 3$ that I found online for .7$...) I can't find them on
    mouser, all electronics, or jamco.

    I have some Bananna Jacks for sale, Red or Black at $0.25 each, Plus
    Sorry no Plugs, or none that I want to sell.

    Look under "Misc".
    It only shows Red ones but I do have some black also.
  5. Look for Banana Plugs (they go on the cables). You can also get
    Banana Jacks to mount on a panel, but you are more likely looking for
    Binding Posts, which will accept banana plugs or bare wire, and have a
    plastic nut to clamp down on the wire. Digikey shows binding posts on
    the same page as banana plugs.

  6. I can't imagine paying $3-4 for a screw with a plastic cap on the top of
    it(which is what it seems to boil down to) ;/ I guess I'll have to rig
    something up or look for something that will substitute for it else I'll be
    paying about 50$-100$ just for connectors when the all the electronics only
    cost about 15$... doesn't make much sense.


    looks like digitech sucks ass? looks like its just another radio shack to
    me? am I missing something? Are those post here

    made of gold or something?

    Also called 4mm plug / socket. They aren't expensive from the right sources.

    Look at these sources. I think you'll be much happier with the prices...
