Default Hacker Grenadier GP45 Power cable

Hi guys - I am looking for a power lead for a Hacker Grenadier GP45. I understand it is called a “pressac” connector type.

Thanks,

Steve

Hi yes I saw that on another thread....was hoping I wouldnt have to add that to the list of things that need doing! Doesn’t look too tricky though, and is a neat solution

Or you could just neatly hard wire a new 3 core in.

Absolutely, but you'd have to provide suitable strain relief and insulate the Pressac's terminals if you leave it in situ, so Vince's solution might actually be easier and safer overall.

I made a new panel so I could keep the old one in case the correct lead ever came my way. Still looking for it.

I have a bit of an aversion to permanently attached mains leads. It makes kit difficult to carry around.

Depending on the end user, you could run with 1/4" insulated push-on spade connectors on the Pressac pins.....

(I've also fitted IEC connectors for non personal use machines)
