I have noticed that on several of my marker boards (pandora, WAS, etc) the connecting wires are either smashed or frayed. This is especially true near the two pin connection. Since I have alot of makers I am going to purchase a number of two pin connections to fix these connections.
If anyone else wants some of these I will be happy to provide them to you for $2.50 each plus shipping ($.47 for an envelope and stamp). They sell for $5.00 each at DC or AKA. Send me a PM if you are interested.
