Sometimes you run out of jumper wires. In that case it may be convenient to make them yourself.

Since I wasn't able to make reliable wires in a way that was previously described (https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-make-jumper...)

I looked for an alternative. The following method worked for me.

What's needed:


- Female headers

- Wire

- Shrink tube

- Soldering iron / solder

Step 1:

a) Cut the legs of the female headers at the right length

b) Pull the shortened legs out

c) Strip the wire at both ends

d) Solder the cut 'leg' to the wire for a male jumper wire end;

solder the 'fork' to the wire for a female jumper wire end.

e) cut 2 small pieces of the shrink tube and apply them to both ends

Your jumper wire is ready!

you can also crimp your own with 2.54mm connectors
<p>just had an emergency -- worked perfect</p>
In the begining I was doing them in a similar way until i found that you can get 20 for 1&euro; and I stock up
