You want a mini-DIN to mini-DIN cable? That would be the Newton to Mac cable, or any AppleTalk cable.

In the end it is just a couple of connectors and a hunk of wire, so - sure - why not?

To rebuild a cable, look up Appletalk connectors, or just the appropriate mini-DIN, or find any of the online old Mac suppliers and get an Appletalk cable.
