I've tried two kinds of sockets (Mil-max inline was one; I don't know the other offhand) and neither fit the way the transitors are drilled on the board. Does anyone know a part number for a transistor socket that will work?

I'm a neophyte, so I apologize if this is a dippy question.

Thanks.

The machined IC socket with round pins you can get as a strip which you just snap as many as you want off. I use that for any socket when putting them on a board. The lead spacing on a PCB is usually in lots of 2.54mm(1/10th inch) just like IC Sockets.

Okay a 'newbie'? Then why not say so? My English teacher would call this use of language 'gobbledegook'. God knows why because the word 'gobbledegook' is gobbledegook in its own right.

I'm confused so therefore i'm off to bed.

PS Jan I hope you got your hoovering done? I got this great image of you in a french pinny donning big hairy slippers- doing the hoovering!! :D

Wot ?? oh the vacuum thingy, yes did that, not the bills tho. BTW ... how's the DVD burning going ;-)

Over here it's a bit like this White Noise song I gues, sometimes, that song about the fleas I mean. Anyway, had to hoover because Rob and Kassen came along, which made a very nice weekend. Rob demonstrated his evolver, cool box ! If I wanted another synth it could be that one, but I think it needs some external MIDI control to really make it work, or Rob of course :-)

Rob is in need of external midi control in order to work properly? Shocked
