lists color codes, but I'm wondering how trustworthy it is. The
entry for 12L14 says "black and white". I assume that means it could be

better reference on end colors somewhere? Can anyone tell me what my two
steel rods with red and orange ends probably are?
Thanks for any enlightenment you can share.
