Question 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?

Thanks

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.
