* you need to use round pins
* there are pin headers that make this easy
* I don't know how to order them, but I have a large quantity of them

I'd be happy to mail a quantity of pin headers that are great for this.
think I have 900 tubes of 10 each of 14 pin headers...lots of them.
Just cover the cost of mailing and add 0.01 $ per pin.

ex.  4$ postage + package, and 10 pin headers of 14 pins each = 5.40

hope that is helpful....Steve
