Temporary Electrical Connection Fixture

I am looking for a way to make a temporary connection (no soldering) to a row of six plated-through holes on the edge of a PCB. The holes are on .1" centers, are .040" I.D., and the pads are .075" O.D. Thinking back to the "bed of nails" concept, I can visualize something like a spring clamp that (gently, but firmly) presses appropriately sized pins (say .050" O.D. with tapered points) on .1" centers into the holes. A wire would be connected to each of the pins. I imagine someone sells such a thing, but I don't know what to Google.
