Experimenters Tube Sockets
I found an Octal relay socket that I'd like to use for breadboarding ? beta testing tube circuits. Are there specifically made sockets for tubes like the octal relay socket, that come in 8 (6L6) and 9 (12AU7) pin that would allow for breadboarding?

Nice. Another dsavitsk Productions Inc.?

Indeed. One of the more useful things I've made.

I've seen those for breaking out connections to octal relays. I'm 80% sure that's what that particular bit was intended for, but it's still useful for tubes!

Those are fine, but it is the 9 and 7 pin versions that are not available.

How much? I would be interested in a 9 pin socket like that. I've got the octals.

I don't think I have any more around. If we gathered people for a group buy, I would guess that a single socket version would run about $4.00 each for 50, and maybe $0.50 less for 100. I'd be happy to do it, but I have my doubts about the interest.
