Hey what are you guys using for Transistor sockets? Part numbers from wherever would be great.

Thanks.

I just use SIL (single in line) sockets and cut them to fit my layout.

But you can get tranny sockets HERE and HERE.

Good deal, thanks! I was wondering about the inline ones. I am going to build a Sunking and I'm fairly new at soldering and I didn't want to fry my transistor but those round ones don't match up with the holes on the Sunking board...so go with the inline? Are they low profile enough?

That's why CRBMoA suggested the inline SIL ones.

Here's Smallbear's link: http://Http://www.smallbearelec.com/Detail.bok?no=101

They're out there for less money, but that's just one option.

Get an 8 pin socket for the IC too.  Those are actually even more sensitive to heat than the transistors from what I understand.
