A TI engineer came up with this solution when I could not obtain any kind of socket for the V9938. That was in 1988.
It is a 64 pin machine socket (from OEM Parts, Colorado Springs where I previously worked as a pin straightener.)
There's a block of basswood and 64 wire wrap (Kynar) connections. Soldered at one end.

The carrier plugged into 2 rows of wire wrap socket strip, cut from 24 pin sockets and glued to the perfboard.
