I made a pair of cable connectors
I found my watchmaking taps and one of them matched the Options threads so I went into the lathe and made a couple.
It only took 4 hours.

(3 cable connectors cost $1.99 )

Isn't it hilarious how we do things like that? My husband is one of those people who does and I just don't get it.

But then I will spend months knitting something I could easily buy at a store... go figure.
