Default Re: Empire electric clock

In terms of the internal diameter of the free connector's female contacts, I've just had a quick play with a TMC (Temco) one I had lying around at work, and I can easily fit the chuck-end of a 3.5mm HSS drill bit into it, but a 4.0mm one does not go.

So possibly 9/64" internal diameter.

Moray's connector sounds like a BS73 2A plug but with short pins.

They're long obsolete and deprecated, but you may be able to find a suitable trailing socket somewhere.

Yes, exactly that. The Wiki article quotes the diameter as 3.6mm which fits exactly with my findings.
