A jump wire, is a short electrical wire with a solid tip at each end (or sometimes without them, simply "tinned"), which is normally used to interconnect the components in a breadboard. Follow this procedure to make your own.

Step 1: Gather the Requirements

Step 2: Measure and Cut Wires From the Ribbon

Make the length to suit your requirements.

Step 3: Separate Every Header Pins and Wire

Step 4: Strip the Sleeve and Twist the Wire

Step 5: Fix the Header Pin in Octopus. Check the Link for Build Instructions -->> Octopus

Step 6: With the Help of Helping Hands Solder the Pin to Wire

Apply flux

Tin the tip


Step 7: Insert Heat Shrink Sleeve and Shrink It With Hot Air Gun

Step 9: Happy Bread Boarding.

<p>I have done this before , but now I use cheap dupont jumper crimp to void paintful soldering. Another option , buy dupont jumper wire ( even cheapper than buy crimp!) , cut by half and extend with your wire. </p>
<p>If there is pain involved when you are soldering you may be doing it wrong. :-)</p>
<p>he, may be. I think my material quality not good so it not easy to stick the wire to tiny pin. If i solder too long -&gt; the plastic melt down. I just find it much easier to use crimp, fast and clean.</p>
Yes that plastic piece will melt down and change its position. Apply optimal heat to avoid that situation. Practice will help.
<p>yes, that basic skill need practice .</p>
<p>You can also use staples to form shorter connections between pins on a breadboard</p>
<p>That's a new information. Thanks for sharing</p>
<p>These are great for prototyping! Nice DIY jumpers.</p>
