    Hi all, so I'm replacing a broken female socket, but in order to do that I have to remove the rivet near the mounting bracket. As of now I figured on using a screw and nut to replace it when I'm done. I'd rather use a rivet, but don't know what type of rivet or squeeze tool. Any suggestions?

    Can't you just replace the whole 12 pin female jones plug?

    There should be plenty of spares out there. I should have some if you need one.

    I could and would if I had one. The guy I got the replacement insert had everything but that size. It's a 12 prong one-2 rows of 6.

    I may have one too, and since I'm 15 minutes from you, could drop it off. Let me look tonight.

    Dremel tool to grind off brass rivet on just one end, twist apart an remove and replace the bad socket. I use small machine nut and bolt. Probably faster than doing all the soldering. Good luck

    Okay guys, thanks. Hope you come with one.

    Yes, much easier, standing by with the nut and bolt in case hoov or Mark don't come up with one. ☺

    I do have one.

    Let me know what you decide. Just shoot me a pm if you want it.

    It's kind of a pain, but I recall having had some luck replacing just one by first straightening the prongs, then using a small flat blade screwdriver to work them in a little at a time, bending them into the slots. Then once in far enough, using a pliers to crimp them in more.

    Sorry Chris, I have an extra 2 x 8, 2 x 5, and 2 x 3, but not a 2 x 6 Jones Plug. Hoov might be your best bet.

    Thanks for looking Mark.
