You can also butt smaller sockets together - e.g. a 6 and a 12 - to create an 18 pin socket. It's a lot neater than chopping off the ends ;>) Jack Ethan Dicks <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote: On 3/20/07, Bryan Pope wrote: > And thusly were the wise words spake by Ethan Dicks > > For those that don't already know, the 2114 is a part that's quite > > famous for failing, moreso than any other RAM chip I can think of. > > It's probably worth pulling both of them and replacing them with > > high-quality machined-pin sockets to facilitate chip replacement down > > the road. > > Would these machined pin IC sockets be good?: > > http://www.unicornelectronics.com/icsockets/MT8.html Yes... that style. The only hitch I see is that the 2114 is an 18-pin part and they don't seem to stock 18-pin sockets. You can buy 20-pin sockets and cut off two pins, but it might not be visually attractive. 18-pin sockets do exist, but I don't know where to recommend you look. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
