    Atmel chips are slightly wider than these, but if you sit the chip on a bit of an angle its fine. Just takes up an extra 3-5mm of vertical space.

      Push harder. Atmel328 fits just fine, but it is a tight fit. You're not going to get the chip out without chip pullers... You won't want to pull the chip out of the socket unless you have to replace it (not just to reprogram it).

    why is there no 20 pin variant other than the much more expensive wire wrap sockets???!

    These are pretty economical sockets. If you have to desolder one, it will be trash afterwords. But they serve their function.

    Does anyone know if legs of this socket are bendable by 90 degrees? I want place it to "paper circuit" and every trough hole is problem...
