Re: What DIP sockets to use in building boards

Nick is definitely correct on this. I've purchased this type as well and actually received them with the terminals pressed completely out of the socket housing. They work great for a quick one-off test, but the springiness of the legs on the chip contribute more to holding them in place than the socket itself. The Jameco sockets are generally good quality at a reasonable price.
