Grounding Plug for mixer?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I have an older KA-5 mixer with no grounding plug and the cord is ok, but kinda flimsy. 

anyone ever put a new plug on theirs?

 So what I gather from your question is that you have a two prong plug which has no common (green wire) and only a hot (white wire) and negative (black wire).  You can wire a three prong plug with the existing cord, you just will not have a common (green wire) connection.  wire accordingly :  white to silver terminal and black to copper terminal and ignore the terminal with the green screw.

Personally, I'd REPLACE THE CORD with a three wire cord and connect the green wire to the metal case of the mixer!

I knew that I'd want to replace the cord; just wondered if someone's done it- where's the best place to ground to housing?  a certain cord works best? etc.

thanks,
john
