Default Heathkit XO-1 power cords

I am trying to find a couple of power cords for these crossovers. They have two round terminal ends that plug into the crossover. I have no idea where to find these and can something be made to work, (phono jacks or something)?

Anybody have any experience with an issue like this?

Thank you, Tom

They're also used on Hewlett Packard test equipment from the 1950's and 1960's -- (my HP 403B DVM uses one). Electrolux vacuum cleaners of the same era also used them. You can check an appliance repair shop in your area, or Ebay as they do show up in the test and measurement with regularity.

0.160 inner diameter? They're banana jacks. If they're spaced 0.75" on center, a dual banana plug will fit.

Power cords? Whoa, wait a minute. That ain't remotely safe. I hate to be a Safety Sally, but that's super dangerous for AC line use. Please don't do it.

All good fortune,
Chris

Just checked my (poor) memory, and these came originally with a captive power cord run through a grommet, knot tied inside for strain relief. Classic Heathkit construction of the day. Are you sure that's not the case for yours?

All good fortune,
Chris

Don't know.

Haven't been able to find much info. at all on these.

It does appear to be some sort of plug-in power cord.
