This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will put a new end on an extension cord.  Why would you ever do this?  Maybe the cord got damaged near the end and you don't mid it becoming shorter.  Or you need to build an extension cord.  Or a tool has a damaged cord near the plug.  Let's fix it!

Here's one video to get you started:


To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - put a new end on an extension cord, build an extension cord or replace the end on a tool's cord.

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
   - a before picture
   - a picture during the project
   - an after picture action shot of the repaired cord

The homemade extension cord I was using had too big an end on it to fit into the weatherproof outlet that it needed to plug into.  So I got a more sleek plug and changed it out.
