Tralee,

It is still permissible to make your own - 1mm brass wire for the male, 1mm I/D brass or copper tube for the female, solder the wire on and insulate as required with shrinkdown.  to provide a tight fit, the tube can either be GENTLY squeezed, or split and squeezed, or the male part given a slight bow.
