    Just picked up a P&B with a broken male pin in a Jones plug. What's the best method of repair? Another Jones plug has a spare unused male pin on it.

    Might want to give this method a try.

    I would replace the jones plug. These come up on ebay frequently - pinjunk on ebay is a great source.

    I appreciate all the suggestions, but this a 16-pin plug and the other 15 are fine.

    Can I just press out the old stub, press in a new pin and solder?

    Thanks.
