    I'm looking for some 8-pin DIL headers.
    They fit into a DIL IC socket, and they have slotted pins on the top, onto
    which you can solder components, wires and stuff while developing a project.
    Dick Smith, Jaycar, and Altronics don't seem to have them. RS has them in
    fourteen-pin size and upwards, but they are not suitable for cutting to
    I have a few, and sadly realised that I have had them for thirty years. Does
    anyone know if they exist and if they are available? Online, or by mail
    because I live in the bush.
    Thank you.

    $5ea LOL!

    ** A " machine pin " DIL socket can be used for that job:

    The pins are strong and the holes will take a component lead.
