New measurements of 62 spectral lines of highly ionized Ni ions in the range of 83–320 Å have been made with an uncertainty of ±0.005 Å. The light source was the TEXT tokamak at the University of Texas in Austin. Lines of Li-like to K-like ions are included, along with visually estimated relative intensities, previous measurements, and classifications. The uncertainty of more than half of the previous best measurements is ±(0.02–0.03) Å.
