    A better method of measuring small inside diameters is with the use of pin gauges. They're available in sizes as precise as four decimal places. A poor man's pin gauge is a twist drill. Numbered sizes (link) are available everywhere for cheap. Use the butt end of the drill to gauge the female contact opening.

    To be certain of what you need, measure the OD of the male pin. What is the diameter of the male pin?

    The connector's or mine?
    It makes a difference.
    But maybe not much---

    The male pin is about 1.48 mm

    Just to close this one out; WA7PRC was indeed correct. Digikey part 350393-1-SI ND is dead on! Already received and installed. Thanks to all, indeed.
