Nice.  I got mine at RoboticsConnection, but the only color was orange.  I like the blue better.

Yer, I know they sell them, but check the price!!



Can you get nice pink ones? For jklug80? 

WHAT! I acutally ordered the bundle (10 of all 3 lenghts) from Frits link... BOA I'm putting you in time out!

That's what i was searching for!! thanks fritsl

actually i've made my own today. that's money saving! (i only need to find something that insulates the header properly, not that tape doesn't but i don't like it much, its quite loose.

I am not sure what it is called, but it is "heat schringking plastic" - it is like the straws you could use to drink from. You cut off a piece, and insert the bare parts into that. Then you heat it up, and it schrinks firmly around the parts. A lighter is what i use, just a quick flame..

Any electronics store will have it!

(And it is what is used on the cables on the picture, it is easy to see if you have tried to use it before, the way it sticks around the object)

nice! i'll see if i can find it...didn't think of it before

if only i could find anywhere in the Uk that sold the blasted things.

 edit: bad lazy christopher, he shall make his own. 0.1" crimps are on the way - could only bulk buy 500 hundred, so if you want some for free, drop me a quick note and you are welcome to a handfull.
