You must be careful about this, because the datasette connector must be
on the DB-9 side of the adaptor. This one just fits into the port of a
CBM-SK model, the 25 pin would be much too wide. I already feared even
the DB-9 wouldn't fit, but it does. I just checked it.

Me too :-) But I fear they are not available at all :-( I could use them
for a Mac-to-VGA monitor adaptor, but never could find one. My Iiyama
monitor also has a 15pin low density dsub connector, but not in the
usual Mac configuration, so I had to build a special cable for it. It
seems the users of 15, 19 and 23pin D-Sub connectors are pretty much
ignored by the adaptor housing industry. We can be happy that the
connectors are still available!
