oakkar7 made this DIY PICKit-2 Lite :
Since, the first use, I stick all with my PIC development and found that very stable and convenience to use. My design is based on Blueroom-electronics design. The Blueroon website is down now. This is the copy of PicKit-2 lite schematic from Blueroom. I used BC547 and BC557 transistors in my build. For 680uH coil, I used a small filter coil from ATX power supply secondary output rail.
