No idea what the commercial availability is, but why would they be
that difficut to make with a double-sided unetched circuit board, thin
band saw, ruler, fine-tipped marker, etc. and a template consisting of
any DEC unibus, qbus or omnibus board? It may take a couple of tries
to get it right, but I don't see why that wouldn't work. Basically,
cut out the two corners on one side to create the outline of the
connector, then, mark where the cut-outs are on the connector between
the pins, use a saw to cut the cut-outs into the circuit board.
