Sorry if this has been posted before...

I'm looking for some prefab header innerconnects for my home Arduino oriented projects.  Stuff to connect the output pins to other devices that are in the 0.1" (2.54mm) pin configuration.

I found this nice looking 1 on Amazon but think it is a bit overpriced:

But that is about the "quality" I am looking for.  If you can recommend a good set of cable + connectors + crimpers that would be nice too but I think a modest assortment of prefab cables would be good.  Crimpers tend to be rather pricey....

My "immediate" need is to connect my Arduino NANO that is on a breadboard to this 4 channel relay module:

Looks like I'll need a 6-pin cable for that one.  Any ideas on where I can get an assortment of prefab cables?

Again, thanks for your help and sorry if this is something that keeps getting asked.  It is just very difficult to identify even the language to use for these things.  (I know, I'm full of excuses...)

Maybe the servo extension or other RC interconnect leads that are sold on Ebay

I agree that the crimping tool is expensive and you would have to be making a lot leads to justify the cost.

Thanks!  I think that rainbow color 40 way cable is what I'm looking for.
