ZIF Jig for AVR ATtiny chip programming

I bought a couple of AVR programmers from e-bay, knowing that I would need to build a jig to connect my ATtiny85 or ATtiny13A. I wanted the jig to use a ZIF (Zero Insertion Force Socket) for my chip, and connect to programmers that use either a 6 pin or a 10 pin cable. The key to assembly is a Schmart Board. It holds the ZIF socket, header pins for either format cable, a reset button, and two LEDs. Schmartboards are actually quite easy to solder.”
