Default StopClock f-stop timer - enlarger 2 pin plug

I could not resist bidding on the above and won it! I believe it is an early version. The enlarger and safelight connections are both kettle female type and my M670 enlarger has a two pin continental plug that fits my Baeuerle timer, which connects to the mains with a standard UK 3 pin plug.
I cannot find any 2 round pin to IEC plug adapters and as my electrical knowledge is zero I am hoping that I can get a cable like the one in the link below, cut the male-end off and re-wire to the lamp. Ditto for the safe light but this is not essential.

Can anybody recommend a better alternative?

I have just found the following:

Try Maplin electronics I think they sell the sockets on their own.

Euroline socket or plug is the correct term to search under.

Does the M670 not have a detachable power cable with a kettle plug ? I know some Dursts do, in which case all you need is an IEC extension lead such as the Amazon one you cite.

Alternatively cut off the two-pin plug on the enlarger and replace it with an IEC plug which fits the StopClock such as http://www.amazon.co.uk/Kettle-Male-...ewireable+plug

We sell them too but cannot buy them in at that price, especially with free p+p!

Is it a cable with these 2 endings that you're after David?
If so, I could have a look for you over here.

Thanks Richard and Marty.

My Durst just has a cable run from the lamp to the 2 pin plug. Maybe the previous owner changed the plug to fit the timer connection.

To avoid cutting and rewiring I need something like this:

I am in Berlin next week so may have a look for an adapter there.

However, it makes sense to cut the 2 pin plug off and fit a new IEC plug as recommended by Richard. I am more likely to use the stopclock for all my printing than return to the Baeuerle.

But not all IEC plugs are made to the same standard!
I bought one of those as quoted above from ebay and the insides are pretty shoddy, loose and don't seem well made. Worth spending a bit more in my opinion and getting a decent one.
