I do have an extraction tool, but was unable to extract the chips
out of the sockets w/o braking one socket... ok soldered in a new one
and put the chips back after cleaning the pins with a glass hair brush..

There is a german company that saves chips from old pcb's, If you are sure
that you need a chip, try to search the numbers in ther database:

I found at least the gate array type..

Search for all numbers, not only the "real" type.
