Don't look for a new end for it. With Norm's method you will be making a new end for it.
As Norm shows, some silver bearing solder, a propane torch and some telephone wire or similar small gauge solid core (definitely not stranded core) wire are all that you need.
Edit: I used leftover solid core wire that came with my garage door opener. The wire is used for connecting the opener button, safety beam and remote control electronic box.

I found a silver bearing solder "kit" at Home Depot that had a roll of solder and a tube of flux. It was in the tool section. I think it cost around $10. Not a bad price when you can make 50 or so cables with it as well as who knows what. Silver bearing solder is much stronger than tin/ lead electrical solder.
