Be careful of teflon loctal tube sockets. Teflon is very slippy. What happens is that the inner part comes up when you pull the tube out of its socket. At least it does on mine. I've stopped using them.

And of course, with loctal sockets you need to open up the bottom of this inner part where it locks the tube pin or you'll have hell taking it in and out. Use a thin nose pliers for instance.

Damn - those are nice! Quite different from the usual teflon types. That central part, however, might still start to slip if it isn't held in pretty securely by the construction. I can't quite see if they lock or not. These days, locking is a just a pain and quite unnecessary.

They are very well made. Get in touch directly with Jakeband if you are interested, but they are not cheap as are handmade and by order.

A great socket is the NOS Russian ceramic one: it locks nicely and perfectly!Not sure how easy is to find these:

10pcs ceramic B8G 8pin LOCTAL BOTTOM PCB MOUNT tube socket for 5B254 | eBay

The ones I use are Chinese as above. The ones I used to have a lot of and dislike intensely are these. They corroded, pins fell off, middle pulled up with the tube (2nd one down):

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_tr...at=0&_from=R40

These look interesting:

These are the Russian type - they come shielded and unshielded.
Loctal sockets shielded used Lot of 8 | eBay

I don't know if a 4P1L goes into a shielded socket, and I'm even more unsure of how you'd get it out except by pushing it from the bottom!!!
