DIP clips?  They can be found, but since DIPs are mostly considered
obsolete they are pretty pricey these days.  Watch on ePay - I picked up a
raft of them from some company closing its service department (cheaper just
to throw things away).  The grey plugs that fit into the end of the pods
have a connector  that fits over an individual pin - they work great on
wire-wrap pins! - and those can be attached to the DIP clip before you
clamp the clip on the IC.  There have been a couple of times I've had every
single pod in play, each connected to one or even two DIP clips.  -- Ian
