    How many do you want?
    I think the shipping would cost more than the price of a new cable.

    Just to be certain:

    What length of cable do you need?
    Is it just for RS-232 or do you need all 9 pins connected, straight through?
    Would flat ribbon cable work for you?
    Are you in a rush for it?
    If I do not have that cable there is a chance I can make one for you, either flat ribbon IDC or old fashioned solder.
    I don't have paypal and I don't exchange for money.
    It will take me a couple of days to check my stock.

    Just a straight gender changer, or a null modem?

    You could also use a male-to-female cable plus a male-to-male adapter.
    Or you could get two male connectors and solder the wires.
    If it is for serial RS-232, you can get away with just three wires.

    I already have a null modem cable male to male , so if i could get a male to female with a swpa that would do too.

    Maybe 10 feet. I would think any db9 straight through would do. No rush

    If this is going to be a hassle for you, no worries. I could just buy one from ebay. I think they are only around $6. I just thought if someone wanted to empty their junk drawer..........
