Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

Can't remember from top of my head - but if those have DB-9 at one end - male of female -  I'll be accepting those thankfully. Use them in my DIY project.

DB9 is serial, centronic is DB25.

nedkelly: DB9 is serial, centronic is DB25.

I now found one centronic cable in my mancave :-) . Initially mixed that with DB25 to DB9 cable.
Those as you rightly pointed out may have DB25 connector on another end.

DB9's are just type of a connectors I am after, what type of interface - does not really matter could be "serial" DB9 to DB9 or cross-over or DB9 to RJ45 or DB9 to USB - I'll cut those out and re-solder for my needs. Then all I have to buy is plastic enclosure for those. And I also re-use those long bolts when taking apart resin - because plastic enclosue you buy in store has only small short bolts - useless.
