I've generally not had much success using a wire-wrap socket to plug a 
daughterboard into an existing socket.  Unless the posts on this one are quite 
thin, they won't fit into the socket on the board.

That means you might have to desolder the existing socket and solder pins of 
the wire-wrap socket directly to the board in its place.  This is a more 
secure mount but means the daughterboard can't be removed.

In the past, I've seen sockets designed for this purpose that have 
machine-tooled pins.  I don't have a current source for these but if anyone 
else does, I would be interested in hearing about it.
