    Anybody know what these are called and/or where I can order them?

    This picture is from a hobbyist electronics book by Ronald Quan:

    They're called 'tag strips'. Brings back memories. Are they still sold?

    Thanks. That's the nomenclature I needed to find them (on eBay at ridiculous prices!).

    How many/what type do you need? I used to have a box of them.

    Such a kind offer! Thanks.

    I don't have a particular need right now, but I'll keep your offer in mind for the future.

    When I'm alone, I call them terminal strips or solder lug strips. I think most people believe terminal strips consist of a row of screws in a piece of plastic. These are just solder type terminal strips to me. Solder, screw, insulation displacement connectors, whatever. They are just mechanical anchor points where you make connections. The solder type is very handy in antique (vacuum tube) guitar amplifiers. You generally design things to not need terminal strips by making plenty of connection points available on the circuit boards. Still, the external world must connect somehow. Panel mounted multi-pin connectors are good, but sometimes you just have to add on a few convenient places to accommodate a modification.
