Default 5-pin plug needed

I need a broken 807 tube or other very old style tube plug to mate with the S-meter socket on a Hallicrafters S-20R. I don't want to sacrifice a good tube but I do need a plug.

I have single pins I can use but that's a bit dangerous so would rather have the plug as a unit. Can anyone help?

These are sometimes available on eBay in the vintage electronics section and under antique radios. I have found them at Hamfests as well.

Ask George (Tubelab). He's got lots of broken 807s, and might have some.

Too late. I had literally 50 or more busted 807's and 1625's. I have far too much stuff and have been paying rent to keep it all, so the stuff that I am not going to use in the next two lifetimes has all been eliminated.

Will these work for you? They fit a standard UX-5 socket (like a Type 27.tube). If you can use them PM me your mailing address, you can have them (free). I also have a couple dead 27's around.
