WTB Panasonic round pin power cord

Looking for an 80's Panasonic power cord. It looks like a standard computer 3pin power cord except the pins are round instead of spade type. I need it for a Pana 10x2 A/V router I bought for my obsolete format dubbing setup. Cash, trade, Phillies tickets (in Phila), etc.

I have a couple of them, but you would need to purchase the pair of 7" color monitors they go with. If you are faced with actually making some, I can take some measurements for you. (I think you'll find them, though.)

Chip, thanks but that is two monitors too many around here. Pic of actual backside connector attached. Rectangular and no beveled guides like a computer connector.

It looks like you could transplant a standard IEC connector into that unit, if no appropriate power cords appear.

If the original does not appear, surgery is next. I have lots of dead IEC units for donation around.

Dave, that looks like what was a somewhat standard power cord in the late 70s to early 80s, maybe on HP test equipment among other items. I know my company built equipment that used a 3-pin offset cord like that in the early 1980s. Let me know if you are familiar with the cord I am describing (and therefore you may already know if one might fit or not). There is an electronics flea market here this weekend, and I can look for one there if I do not already have one. If I have one, or find one, I will be happy to send it to you. (The ones I am thinking of had an oval or rounded-end molded shape around the three holes for the conductors.)

Chris, I did have some in the 80's on Panasonic equipment. Long gone. I remember the cord side having two rounded or beveled corners...not oval. If you see one I'm good for the costs.

Dave, I just had a chance to get back on here. I will check my stock of cords and let you know what I find.
