We do have a manufacturer that admitted they were weak and are making some
using beryllium-copper. They're going to send samples to one of our MMTA

I bought from the original FofH batch of these and people have been having

course now I need to go home and really torment one of the jacks as I was
very close to finally designing some boards around them...
