I'm replying to the list, since the information has broad use:

I saw that.  Might go that route, but I'll send them an email to see if 
they have the DIP option.

Actually. ROM-el, since it doesn't have the EPROM on top like the older 
CMD JD options, fits in the 1541-II fine.  My focus was uZoomFloppy, 
which needs to have the 6522 plugged into it.

My apologies, I should have noted to the list sooner.  I purchased 1000 
piece lots of 24 and 28 machine pin headers (like RDA624-8G and 
RDA628-8G.  I keep meaning to put them on the store, but I do have lots 
of stock (I also now have RDA640-8G) and am happy to supply at a good 
price ($.40 per 24pin, $.50 per 28, and $.70 per 40 pin)  in bulk 
purchases (batches of 10 or 20).

I also have machine pin 28 pin sockets with long leads (to use when you 
want to use the pins as passthroughs on the PCB into a socket on another 
board).  I can price those as well.

I just picked up Right Angle PCB mount IEEE-488 connectors (which are in 
the store) and can supply those in bulk at a better price than noted in 
the store.  Same for DIN6 connectors (just snagged a bunch of those at 
half the price Digikey charges), 44 pin C64 expansion port connectors, 
VIC-20 44 pin connectors, cassette port edge connectors, and 8 position 
DIP switches with piano levers (the ones used on XPander-3.  I don't 
list them on the storefront since I buy them as parts for the designs, 
but I always buy connectors in bulk.  All I ask is that folks request 
lots, not singles.

In fact, if you find you need a part and it's hard to source, send me a 
note.  I can usually justify buying a large lot to get a great price and 
sending a bunch from the lot to folks.
