The boss told me today that he wants the four of us each to have a jumper set. I am think maybe. 6 to 8 three to 4' bright colors. Also I am thinking each man should have his own color. They should also be 18 maybe 16 AWG and extremely flexible. Any ideas where I might buy something like that

I buy extra long fluke test leads, then you can use all the different style of ends as needed..



Start with the basic and work up.

Just flexible wire with alligator clips on each end. The Fuke leads would not work for what we need. Thanks LC

I don't know who makes them but I have seen a set that used rare earth magnets ( really friggin strong) to hold onto terminal strip screws or onto bolts, etc.

If you have a meter with a 10A jack on it you can leave the meter in the off position and put your probes in the common and 10A jacks and you then have a 10A fused jumper. I find this easier and safer then a straight piece of wire with alligator clips on the ends. If you really want that though any HVAC supply house will have a jumper set with magnetic tips on the ends. I like those better because it will work with most terminal you are trying to connect to.
