Well it was only a matter of time before the plastic output jack on my Affinity Tele broke. My solution was to epoxy it back together and then glue a piece of laminted business card to it's underside to help re-inforce it. Once the glue was dry I simply made the holes for the jack and the screws by puncturing through the buisness card and then I trimmed off the excess card to match the the shape of the jackplate. It's now been replaced and seems to be holding up fine. This is just a temporary fix until I can get a metal one to replace it.
