Computer jumper - What to order?

    I need to make a few jumper cables for my PC (front audio, LED, etc.) but I
    don't know the specs for the headers other than they are male at 0.1 inch
    spacing.

    For the female ends of my cables what do I need
    - for a housing? (most will be two pin, but there will be some 3 or more pin
    and dual row headers)
    - female pins inside the housing?
    - tool to crimp the femail pins to my wire before inserting into the housing

    I'm hoping to place an order at Digikey soon. The headers appear to look
    like:

    Any help is appreciated.
     
  2. Look at the AMP/Tyco .1" connectors in the online DigiKey catalog. Sound like
    what you are looking for, but be warned the AMP crimp tools aren't cheap.

    They sure aren't cheap. Even where I work they don't have one.
    I prefer to solder the things any way, and then just fold them neatly
    with long nosed pliers.
