If you have the correct plug cut it off the wire and wire it to the correct power supply. Or use a resistor and make your own power supply out of one thats a little to big?? Im no expert but that should work. Ive done it before.

There's one M to Q adapter shown here:

Size-3063 "RS size Q" Coaxial Power plugs have 6.3MM=.250" O.D. with 3MM hole

CR30-346 Coaxial Size Adapter size-2155 socket = jack to size-3063 plug $3,20



Size-2155 "RS size M" Coaxial Power Plugs have 2.1mm hole & 5.5MM =.216" O.D.
the hole in a Size-2155 connector is close to the size of a 5/64" drill bit

Some options here, http://www.mpja.com/powersupply.asp but nothing direct fit. Will require adding the plug.
