    friends new headphone's jack was malfunctioning.
    saw that the soldered ends had come off. definitely from high passage of current or something.

    but i didnt have a spare 3.5mm male with me. So i cut out the metal part of that jack with a dremel and soldered the wires again.


    then i had a bainwave. Took the cap of a finished use and trow pen. made the hole bigger.
    then fit it through the hole and sealed it with resin and super-glue and stuff. :p

    its creative... and its also a dead short waiting to happen
    pretty sure they are less then 5 bucks at radio shack
    also if it burnt the connector off then thats very bad There should be very little voltage to a 3.5mm audio jack ....

    Yeah, that makes it look like you didn't even do it yourself.

    If you can make or replace something with things you already have lying about the home/workplace, why buy? it's free and you learn more in the process :)

    I keep thinking the thread's title says "penis cap" instead of "pen's cap"
