New in the Maker Shed: Female to Female and Male to Female Jumper Wires.

While they are not the most fascinating product, the Maker Shed’s new jumper wires are really handy for prototyping. The female to female version is perfect if you need to attach a male pin to another male pin and is great for making extensions with regular jumper wires.  The male to female version also works as an extension but lets you plug sensors, modules, and individual components directly into female headers or into a breadboard. Every electronic tinkerer needs a set of these in their arsenal! They are also available in a bundle containing both versions.


I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I'm a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
