Re: crystal sockets or mounting pins

If you need a more robust technique also remember that machine pin type sockets stack easily. You could take another similar piece and solder the crystal to it so you are not stressing the crystal leads each time you insert or remove it.

Another good use for these strips is as sockets and connectors in your construction projects. Rather than solder all of the leads from switches and pots to the circuit board you can attach them to a socket and then plug that into a second socket mounted on your PCB. If you ever have to remove the board for repairs it's easy to unplug things.

Used this method on many Rock-Mites and others to make complete band
changes including output filters. Worked out well with the SAVXO too.
