Orion Molex to Power Pole Mod

Partial removal of Molex connector.

Cleaned the holes.

Parts needed: PP, half of retaining plate and 1/16 (1.57mm) brass tube.

     Thanks to Rick VE7TK for saying that it's O.D.
     NOTE: Powerwerx.com has the Printed Circuit Board
           connector instead of having to roll your own.
           SKU 1377G3

Close up of parts.

Installed and waiting to be soldered.

Here what it looks like after soldering.

Optional retaining plate. I decided to put half for stress relief.

Final test. Looks and functions nicely.

	 I'll paint the plate and screw black
	 at a later time.
