Breadboards and multimeters are both staples of any of DIY electronics project, but they don’t play well together because multimeters don’t usually have probes small enough to fit into the breadboard. Instructables user landimatteo solves this problem with a clever little mod.

The process here is basically just replacing the cables in the multimeter with smaller ones so they can attach into a breadboard. It’s a pretty simple process that requires a bit of soldering but shouldn’t take longer than 10 or 15 minutes to finish up. If you’re using your multimeter a lot, it beats attaching alligator clips every time.
