Cheers Op. Ordered

Shame the probes are hard-wired, I need some replacements for my multi-meter and you can't even buy the probes for this much.

Banana plugs are cheap on eBay ... Solder job? Alternatively can get cheapo probes from AliExpress etc.

These leads are probably not rated for mains so I wouldn't just solder banana plugs myself.

In this application you're right. But.... I think what he's suggesting is that if you chop them off to use on a standard multimeter you might use that for mains, thinking they'll be fine. They may not be.

Yup it wasn't really providing advice for the professional, rather the have a go weekend tinkerer checking PCB traces, batteries/diodes/resisters/capacitors, MOSFETs etc.

The reason I assumed 'tinkerer' is because a Professional would never have even dreamt of asking that. A profession would have stumped up for proper fluke or whatever preferred brand of probes and been done with it. At around £50 or how ever much they are.

Or maybe just buy some professionally rated leads for a reasonable price cpc.farnell.com/tenma/ten01096/test-leads-1m/dp/IN07315?mckv=sMGBaZkVS_dm|pcrid|224697928777|kword||match||plid||slid||product|IN07315|pgrid|46440760989|ptaid|pla-369673148122|&CMP=KNC-GUK-CPC-SHOPPING&gclid=Cj0KCQjwpcLZBRCnARIsAMPBgF0q82Su8Gl0vJWObiLVGV1p5kLUibbJS11G3TH6mbnJU2VTMHlgYXQaAlv2EALw_wcB

rather than potentially risking anyone's life with 12 volt leads on a multimeter likely rated to 600 volt.
