Cant find any 50 pin (Not the 36 pin printer type) Centronics male plugs for a decent price anywhere. Anyone know where I can get some? I have a few female ones from old SCSI disc enclosures, but no males.

My trusty old EPROM programmer has died. :(

So, im looking for a new one. Must be able to burn 27C64/128/256 and 27C1001 and preferably 27C400. PIC support would be nice, but not essential.Would like it to be USB based too.

Anyone got any suggestions - I don't want to spend too much.

Last weekend the guys from Old Gold Tech visited the Centre for Computing History. This 10.10.10 special show features Part 1 of the footage form their visit. Even my name gets a mention. I didnt want to go in front of the camera!  :-\
