Got a broken headphone jack? Cut it off, solder on a good one and use this customizable mold to create a new end.
Sugru works great for casting ends!
- Customize, print and sand the mold for a good fit
- Apply some soapy water to the mold and roughly mold out your jack with sugru.
- Press the rough mold into the two halves. Use 2 or 3 bolts to ensure it all lines up properly.
- Use a clamp to press the mold firmly together.
- Gently open the mold and remove the casting immediately. DO NOT CURE IN THE MOLD. See the notes below.
I had only limited success with allowing the sugru to cure IN the mold. I don't think it can out-gas enough to properly cure. I have since made several more casts of this type using the soapy water
The variable names aren't my finest, but are well documented in the .SCAD file with a nice ASCII drawing. Download it and things will be much more clear.
The DF MarkDown that Thingiverse uses doesn't have a way of escaping 'special characters' so I can't reproduce the drawings here.
