This raised a question for me.

Lots of folks are asking for simple "adapters" for things like:

* older 24 pin EPROM to 28 pin JEDEC EPROM
* daughtercards for 40 pin CPUs and such

I have some vintage items like this, and as I look at them, it looks 
like they use something similar to a machine-pin socket, but each end of 
the pin is the same (small diameter.

It looks similar to this:


But, this one has forks on the top, not a small pin.

Here's the right pin, but it's a 1x header, not a socket:


I know they are still made, but I have no idea what they are called.  
Digikey and Mouser are not helping me find them.  Anyone know what I am 
talking about?
