You don't need the tc-80ns, you need a pocket wizard cable that connects the pocket wizard cable to the camera and keeps the camera awake. Then you can hold a second pocket wizard in you hand and use it to trip the camera. There is also the capability to pop flashes at the same time.

$80USD at B&H. Here is the link (external link). Much better than cutting up and splicing things together.

think you have missed what i want to do.
I want to be able to time lapse with a camera that is not accessible when i want to start the time lapse. So to beable to controll when the time lapse starts I want to be able to plug my tc-80n3 into the pw so i can control all the time-lapse functions remotely. Dont fancy hacking my tc-80n3 so that it has a Jack on the end so just need to make a basic n3 to jack adapter

You don't need a female N3 jack to do what you want. All you need to do is split the TC-80N3 cable. Connect a stereo 1/8" miniphone plug on the TC-80N3 controller end and a stereo 1/8" miniphone jack on the N3 connector end.

When you want to use the TC-80N3 normally, all you need to do is to connect the two parts together.

When you want to use it with the PW units, disconnect the two halves and connect the TC-80N3 controller to the Tx PW unit and connect the N3 plug end to the Rx PW unit via a mono 1/8" miniphone plug to mono 1/8" miniphone plug cable.

Just make sure you wire the stereo plugs and jacks correctly. The Focus wire needs to be wired to the Ring and the Shutter wire needs to be wired to the Tip. Of course, Common (or Ground) goes to the sleeve.
