Several people on the TekScopes/Tekscopes2 forums went through this a 
while back. It turned out that ribbon cable appropriate for this 
application was either not available or too expensive.

John Griessen made a set of PWBs and sold kits consisting of a PWB pair, 
a connector pair and a set of pre-cut and pre-stripped wires. I believe 
he sold all the kits.

I built one of mine and it works well. I use it with a TM-501 as a 
stand-alone test setup for single-wide plug-ins.
