SMD right angled PCB connectors

I'm trying to find a decent, cheap, method of connecting a PCB into another at a 90 degree right angle. Ideally the connector has to be SMD (I've no idea if SMD and hole-through can be soldered by machine but I figure it's more work as the piece would have to be glued).

My inital thought was something like what PCI or the old ISA slots use, something like that, just a bit more compact.

Ideas!?!

Here's the application. You can see half of the main PCB board in transparent black to the right. There is to be another PCB coming off this. As there's a hole at the back I could use a hole through connector with the pins coming through the rear (trimmed). The 1mm hole lets RF through and will be epoxy filled, but a hole-through adds overhead. A SMD version would be better. The second board will be siliconed in place so strength of a SMD component wouldn't be an issue.

Good point, I don't have an exact figure but 8 or 10 sounds about right. Be good if I can buy different length variations.

The 0.1" connectors they put on Arduino boards come in a right angled variety. Coupled with the straight female socket would maybe fill your needs. They come in long strips you can cut down.

Seems they call them headers, See here.
