Also, if you are unfortunate enough to get the Single Row, Machined
Tooled Strips, you will want to make sure that they are Squared Up..

I used a Machined Socket, as a Jig, to hold the Machined Tooled Strips
Square while Soldering them into the Board..

Also, only Solder Each End, just Two Pins, so that if it isn't Square,
it is very easy to reheat and move, to the correct place.

Once your sure it's Square, then Solder the other 18 Pins on the Strip..  ;)

"Good Judgment comes from Experience...   Experience comes from Bad

Figure that the Machined Tooled Strips should be Perpendicular to the
Circuit Board...
