Re: gEDA-user: yet another breadboard adapter

I've done the same thing with SMT .100 dual row headers and sockets.  
The .100 headers fit a piece of FR4 nicely down the middle.  I solder 
the header pins to pads on either side of the PCB.  Then I solder the 
SMT legs of the header to the socket.  What works best are the old 
sockets made for resistors like the Aries series 600 DIP headers with 
coined contacts.  When the parts bin is lacking these sockets I go for a 
Mill-Max machined socket because it provides sufficient exposed metal on 
the socket side to solder to.
