Erik is talking about ATT optical which is a fiber optic format several notches beyond toslink in performance. It is relatively widespread on American made High End digital transports, DACs, etc. You can google for more detail.

Try McMaster-Carr, although I find their catalog incredibly frustrating to navigate...

You might try SDP/SI (Stock Drive Products and Sterling Instrument)

https://sdp-si.com/eStore/

Other than that, maybe hobby stores.

AT&T also sometimes referred to as ST (Short Tip) is exactly as forementioned by Kevin.

Indeed a clear winner...I mounted it as mailed...

Yesterday we rigged the final supplies and electronically we have finished the PiTbull......I seriously think that there is not much more we can electronicwise do to make it sound better....

For me in my set-up a lovely result....(understatement)

I will now start to concentrate on building a dedicated stand with the supply and transport as a drillplatform....a bit like a Goldmund reference turntable comes to my mind....

It looks great Audio1st! I did also like the first version you made (with the white cover) but this looks better.

Btw,

Does anyone have the drawing of the screw-on puck based platau that was posted somewhere in this topic?

I browsed te entire topic , but I must have missed it.
