    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 ....

    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 :)
