Not really. Take two angled neutriks, remove the metal tube that screws on the split metal angled part, rip off the strech reliever and use it directly on the split part. Then all you need to fit in the cable is 2x strech reliever. Use hot glue to make sure it sits well. Like i did here: http://i136.photobucket.com/albums/q...egard/lod2.jpg but as a IC. You should be able to make a 3 cm cable with ease

Yes ur absolutely right.... Never knew cheap plugs from the electronic store are that interesting

Cptnodegard did you use dfkt's hot glue trick? Nice DIY, I wonder if you could make some kind of form like a small pill bottle or piece of piping?

Lol ive been using hot glue for the last 10 years, I just normally cover it up.
Dunno what you mean by pill bottle or pipe, but if you mean a resistor adapter it really shouldne be any bigger than this unless it either had a second contact point for stability or is a short cable. Stress on the jack would kill it

Heh, no I mean something to form it into a shape. If you put it into a piece of pipe and then hot glued it then it would come out in a circular shape. Might look kind of nice.

Ah yes now i get you. I have done that before, but having excess glue would defeat the purpose of making the smallest adapter ever. Im not going to use it anyways, just a proof of concept.

Not quite sure where this belongs, but this thread seemed like a safe bet.

This is my second attempt and my first success. Old-school tape adapter (was actually bundled with an original Sony Discman back when they were first coming), re-cabled and re-jacked for the new millennium:

@ dfkt, You need to patent the bridge

@ AGW, Nice job, the plug looks like the ones carried by radioshack, AZ

What haven't you built with wood? Any wooden cars in your driveway?

Finally cut down the cable of my HFI-780 to a useful portable size and terminated them with a threaded Switchcraft plug, so I can still use the stock screw-on 3.5-to-6.2mm adapter.

That Switchcraft plug has no threading on the inside, so I used adhesive heatshrink, hot glue, the barrel of a Neutrik plug, and some heatshrink on the outside again... that should last for a while.

Considering the temperatures here in Austria at the moment, they make damn fine ear muffs on the go.

I just finished making a cable extension for my phones. The plugs colors don't match, I know it might bother some people, but i simply couldn't care less

Sorry for the cell phone pic.
First ever attempt at making something with a soldering iron. Did this on a whim so I just found the nearest ethernet cable ripped it apart and got some Radio Shack plugs.
Also had to redo it because I kept forgetting to slide the barrels and heatshrink on (and the solder smoke too ).

Here's a black techflex neutrik right angle IC that I made this morning, what's nice is that it's really flexable.
