card edge connectors!

A project log for core memory

Make my core memory board functional

Ok, to do anything with this board, I have to find 'card edge connectors'. (I think that's what they're called.)

There are 26 pads over a  span of 3". Note that I'm not counting the 2 on each end of those spans (because only one-quarter of them have wires, and they're separated a bit more than the rest). KIM that the board is double-sided (and, yes, the contacts are aligned directly opposite each other).

So, does anyone know where I can find such a creature?

Ok, looking for connectors. I checked 6 electronics distributors. Stuart suggested Mouser; they have 1 that matches the card thickness (2.3 - 2.5 mm). But, it's a hybrid of 2 types.

Four others were no joy. Digi-key is the only one that scored -- 144 that match the thickness and pitch (3.18 mm).

  Are you sure? yes | no
