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!

Step 1: Tools and Materials

OK, there isn't a whole lot to these, all you need is some basic tools and some stuff you can get at your local electronics store.

Tools:
Soldering Iron
Solder
Pliers
Wire strippers/cutters

Materials:
50Ohm, RG58/Ucoax cable with male BNC connectors (length is up to you, I used a 2' one)
Heat shrink tubing
Solder wick
Wire (~24AWG, I used solid core breadboard wire)
Female headers (0.1")
Male headers (0.1")
