Quite right Anders -

TPUG has PET 2 IEEE and IEEE to IEEE cables at $30 (Canadian) each plus 
shipping and handling.

The PET 2 IEEE are all Commodore branded while the IEEE to IEEE could be 
Commodore or 3rd party.

We have found that some PET 2 IEEE were manufactured with the PET 
connector "up side down" - that is the Commodore logo and part number 
(which one assumes to be the up side) had to be facing down towards the 
table or floor.

I'm sure that when these were new the "teeth" put in by Commodore 
ensured the proper orientation but over time most of these "teeth" have 
fallen out.
