This instructable will show you how to make some simple and cheap oscilloscope probes. Part costs are kept low and what you get are EMI blocking probes with changeable, multipurpose tips.

In the picture below you can see that they look really good and I can attest that they work a heck of a lot better than my 'paper clip and alligator patch cable' setup I was using before!
