IC sockets needed for LowRider?
« on: July 08, 2014, 05:52:27 AM »
I'm building the LowRider, and I just realized that the larger ICs are 14-pin, not 16-pin as I assumed. So the sockets I have won't fit. Do these ICs need to be socketed, or can I fairly safely solder them directly?

Rule of thumb...always socket! PM me your address, I'll hook you up (if you're in the states). How many do you need?
