Wayne, Ian, Marc,
Thank you very much for pinning that one down for me so quickly. Yes they are fairly pricey, but at least that's a better price than Mouser.
I had a thought, that if the pin spacing was on par with say a common 15-pin VGA male connector I could buy a bunch of dirt cheap Golden Dragon ones, set them up in the mill and run a high speed slitting saw diagonally between the pins (right though the block and metal surround in one go), and just add a plastic spacer to bump it out to the length of the 19-pin. After all there are only 6 pins used, and of those, just one (assuming common) that would be on the extended bit.
