    well it's easy, make sure that the stripboard's parallel connection or whatever you call. Im talking about the copper is horizantal then insert the ic vertical. I'll post a pic.

    I use a 1/8 in drill bit, twisting it by hand in a hole until the strip is cut. There is also a tool you can get that does it the same way.

    Agree with BobK, but I've always used a larger drill, about 1/4 in simply because it's easier to hold.

    You can use anything you like - its a no brainer. I use a pair of wire cutters, or sometimes I'll twist a screwdriver in teh hole, and if I really need a fine cut (like for a 2 row header socket) I'll use a craft knife.

    Edit: For the craft knife option, its best to make the cut before soldering then solder only 1 side of the pin

    Yep. I use a drill bit that was intended for a drill driver, with the large hex shape on the end. This is easy to twist by hand.
