Flying Bus DIY

I’d like to build myself a flying bus, but don’t seem to be able to find the female sockets required.
Anyone know what they’re called?

IDC connector? Like this? http://www.tme.eu/en/details/1658621-3/idc-connectors/te-connectivity/

@larsen that’s the one. But the male version. Less easy to find.
Thanks.

Found some at Bitsbox. They don’t have the lugs to screw them down, but I’ve got nothing to screw them to in my open-back rack, anyway.

Ah, that’s useful. For next time, though. I ended up getting 10x male + 2x female connectors + 90cm of 26-way ribbon cable from BitsBox (UK online supplier).

It saved me a few £s, over pre-made ones, and I can hopefully use the extra 10 wires of the ribbon cable to make up more module power ribbons.
