Default Leads for ISCO PS?

I just purchased and ISCO electrophoresis PS and need to purchase or make some leads for it. Any recommendations? None of the leads I have in my parts box will fit.

Banana plugs fit nice and snug in mine. Don't know which one you have. Be mindful that most leads are good only to 5 or 600V. Get or build 5kV or better leads if you want to explore the upper voltage levels.

You probably have a 494. Here is a manual for it.

Thanks for the quick reply! Yes mine is a 494, purchased after seeing it mentioned here. It will be an adjunct to my Heathkit PS which can only supply 100mA @ ~425V. I have already downloaded the manual, thanks again.

I have a couple cheap banana plugs which I won't use and a few more expensive ones with metal bodies (also not good for this). I'll have to lay hands on some nice insulated plugs.

To be honest I don't see myself exploring the upper voltage levels but who knows what the future might bring?

I use leads from probemaster:

See 8026S or 8010S

Nice snug fit, and I use the spade lug to attach to my work.

The 9100 series has a retractable shroud, which might be more safe, but I have not tried it.

Both series are good for 1KV working voltage; well within my needs. Not expensive at all and very nice quality.

Actually, isco was very helpful with the schematic. Maybe they have leads for not toooo much...?
