I had the same problem.
You can tack it back to keep your testing in progress, then I would order a replacement.

I strongly suggest using smaller stranded wires, such as 18 ga. when you replace it.

Hey y’all,

I’m nearing completion on my bayou jumper and, just my luck, snapped the negative lug off the power jack when positioning the front panel. Any suggestions as to a work around/soldering it back or will I need to just order another power jack (all the more likely but I wanted to check with the expert hams first).
