    If you are not finding what you want locally, The 12 Pin guys ship ePacket. You should see those in about 3 weeks. I get ePacket shipment in 8-14 days (West Coast.) But there are those that say they ship ePacket and don't, hence those long delivery.

    They would cause the price to raise too much. Although, they are a real nice option that I do personally on my own boards.

    Thanks Wayne. I went ahead and ordered the ones Mrgrumpy posted. I have a desoldering station so it shouldn't be a big deal replacing them. Sure would make things easier in the future especially the 24 channel controllers.

    Perhaps you could offer they as an option to your kits?

    Got my 8 pin plugs today. Waiting for the 12 pins sometime next month. Really easy to replace and a heck of a lot easier to disconnect when needed. Wish I had these in the beginning. Thanks Mrgrumpy.

    Wayne purchases the parts for the kits and keeps them in his personal stock. He would have to invest additional $$ to keep the plugs & sockets in stock hoping folks would want them. How many to keep on hand, how many less of the terminal blocks...... With sales of AC controllers falling off due to the explosion of Pixels, I don't see that happening. Just my $.015

    Seems like forever to get my 12 pins. They say on or before April 14. I checked with Mouser and the prices are ridiculous. Can't find anywhere in USA where you can buy in quantities under 50. Oh well, guess I'll just have to wait.

    I bought these along with the female counterparts and they arrived quick.

    Thanks but their 12 pins are 5mm and I need 5.08mm.
