1) Female Socket Breakaway Headers(the machined pin style, aka Swiss pin)
2) Pad-per-Hole perfboard(mine came from RadioShack)
3) 1.5mm Drill bit
The pin headers I used are quite cheap, on eBay they are less that $1 for 100pins. When you first get them the pins are still inside of the molded plastic housing, I removed the plastic but you can leave it. (I don't have any photos of the removal of the pins, as I did this before I decided to make an instructable.)
Step 1: Attaching Pins to Board
Step 2: Soldering and Plugging Wires Into Receptacles
When testing the pin headers, the wires seemed to be to narrow for the socket to grip well but with 14 sockets they collectively have enough grip to hold the tube pretty securely. I WOULD ADVISE YOU TO DEPEND ON THE SOCKETS TO HOLD AGAINST MUCH FORCE! But they held against gravity.
A further step that you might consider is cutting out the soldered socket, that way it could be used like a regular socket.
