@petricor you're a pioneer
why bothering soldering a c6 connector instead of using the c14 connector that comes with the HDplex?
is it simply a space issue .. the c14 connector doesn't fit comfortably into the provided hole?
i've never soldered anything before,
it would be easier for me to cut a bigger hole into the chassis to accommodate the c14 than try additional soldering
or is there a greater purpose for the c6 connector
amazing work, hoping to replicate (won't be running new cables on the HDplex .. godspeed)
The C14 with a bigger hole was the original plan, but with the large switch there simply wasn't enough space. It would potentially work when using a 12mm vandal switch instead (as suggested by @Thirumal Kumaran previously).
Also you'd need to cut a square hole of sorts without any chance of covering it - will be hard to avoid onerous post-finishing of the case. In the end, the perfect fit of the C6 plug through the existing opening was too appealing to not give it a try - using a 12mm switch you might get away without any cuts whatsoever and just an additional hole drilled in...
