Hello,
I tried searching on ebay and aliexpress, but I can't seem to figure out what the correct keywords are. I'd like a set of 10 identical ones if possible.

What I have found are blue and orange ones. Yuck, it must be yellow!  ;)

Thanks!

Why don't you post a screen grab of Dave using his yellow spudger... Maybe someone will recognize it.

Have you tried "yellow spudger" ?
A 3.5 digit 4.5 digit 5 digit 5.5 digit 6.5 digit 7.5 digit DMM is good enough for most people.

As requested, here's a picture. I don't think I've ever seen the full thing, just that end.

I'd feel really stupid if I hadn't tried that. That being said, sometimes these search engines can be finicky. You can search for the exact item number and not get results until you give the search engine a bigger hint.

@bdunham7 That is the physical form of the item. And certainly, the keyword "yellow" is in the description. But if you take the picture and put a yellow and an orange line next to them you can clearly see that these are not yellow.

That's CSS orange and yellow that I'm using. It has nothing to do with my palette or program that I'm using to "paint" with.

You could be making a fundamental mistake here.

Firstly, a lot of eBay photos are not properly illuminated, let alone correctly white balanced.  Yellow things looking orange is an easy thing to do.  Have a look at the last photo of the set and you will clearly see a yellow colour.  It does have an orange fringe, but that is what happens with poorly lit yellow items.

I have found that accurate colour on eBay is the exception, not the rule.  See here for more info on such photography:
