    Does anyone have a source for female wire connectors that fit the ramps 1.4 board pins? I have only been able to locate harwin m20-1180046 crimp connectors. These fit the 2.54 center to center plastic headers but the receptacle width is a little too large and I have to pinch them smaller to hold to the smaller ramps pins. Not a good solution.

    Or do you mean the wires like thermistor signal?

    a little confusing because the R2 doesn't have a RAMPS board :)
    It has the main control board (which is really an Arduino Mega + RAMPS, but still)

    sorry, I forgot to explain. I've replaced the R2 mainboard with a RAMPS/Mega2560 boards. I've used a breakout board to get to the information for the extruder. Mostly I need to connect the individual wires on the breakout board to the various pins on the Ramps board. I've made my own connectors with stuff from amazon suppliers but the female are too large for the ramps pins.
    I've been so buried in this project I forgot the the rest of the world isn't sitting next to me watching what I'm doing. But being retired with a great hobby is the best.

    OK so specifically you are looking for the connectors for like the thermistor to the RAMPS and not the heated bed?
    Those are rather different in size as well as location :)
