I have put 2 photos on a web server




The plccdil picture shows the adaptor from PLCC to DIL32, with one of 
the 32-PIN ZIF sockets I bought plugged into the top of it.

The 2nd image is the PLCC ZIF socket - incedentally, it does not show in 
the picture, but at the bottom it has 32 pins sticking out IN a DIL 
arrangement which can plug into an EPROM programmer (well into a DIL ZIF 
socket actually).
