Topic: Zojirushi H2O kettle Revisited (2 msgs / 59 lines)

Oh, Duh!
Of all the electrical connectors I've ever seen over the years and miles, I
just drug out the SC popcorn popper for some excellent popcorn. Not Kettle
Corn- I'm 40 years and 40 pounds beyond my flying days. Hah! Just flew
soldering irons and oscilloscopes.
The Stir Crazy connector may be close to the Zo:
2 pins are 0.155"d X 0.500"L, 0.500" OC. 120v, 1,000w
If these are close, don't force anything! Just apply firm pressure and seat
the connector.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!
Got Grinder?

I can't find the start of this thread so I'll jump in here.  Surprised 
RayO didn't mention this, but in the event his proposed connector does 
not work out, just wrapping and taping is a horrible idea for the amount 
of current involved.  If you're trying to test it before buying a cord 
from the manufacturer, at least use heavy booted alligator clips crimped 
or soldered to the line cord (these are called "widow-makers, for 
obvious reasons). Use tape as necessary only to keep the clips from 
shorting together, not for physical support. For a permanent solution 
you could firmly solder the cord to the prongs--give it a good honest 
tug when you're finished to make sure you don't have a cold joint--and 
put shrink wrap over it (you have to put the shrink wrap on the wires 
first, of course, and have it back far enough so it doesn't shrink as 
you're soldering).  Of course if you did that then found the proper 
cord, cleaning up the solder would be tricky.
To be really kosher with the soldering method you'd need some kind of 
mechanical strain relief.  If there is no convenient way to do this at 
least make sure it never falls off the counter plugged in (of course 
you'd have other problems then anyway).  If it were just wrapped on the 
prongs and taped in that case you would almost surely fry something, 
including possibly yourself.
