Wanted: ExpressPCB component layout for 7 pin socket

I am wondering if anyone has the pad layout for 7 pin valve socket that can be used with ExpressPCB (component files have .p extension).

ExpressPCB is very easy to use PCB layout tool.

The one for 9 pin would be handy too:). It is quite possible that the pin shape and position (my sockets have quite wide pins) may be in the wrong place but it would be a starting point.

I suspect I will end up having to do it all my self.

thank you for that; saved me a bit of time calculating position of the pins.

Use a free Cad like eMachineshop, position the part at the dead centre for both software and borrow the co-ordinates into ExpressPCB. This way you can draw any part precisely.
