Question 6C33C socket types, where to buy?

There are a few different kinds of 6C33C sockets available.

On ebay most of the sockets are Chinese clones of Russian sockets.

Chinese: PAIR GOLD 829B 826 TM-30 832B 6C33C Ceramic Tube Sockets B7A Base FREE SHIPPING | eBay

Russian: Ceramic Socket 6C33C 6S33S 6C41C GU32 GMI-6 1pc.or more | eBay

The Russian ones are better but they both have an issue where they have trouble handling the current for the heaters due to poor contact surface and pressure on the pins. Running the heaters at 12v mitigates this issue, but the sockets remain less than ideal

But the one I'm interested in is this one:

This seems like an ideal socket, but I haven't been able to track this type of socket down.

Does anyone know where I might procure such a socket?


PS:
A while ago someone in the UK started selling a teflon version, which is also interesting: 13E1 6C33CB QQV0640A Valve Tube Base Socket PTFE | eBay

but I prefer the ceramic Russian ones.

Thanks for the links!
$40-50 per socket is a bit to rich for me though.

Ah cool, thanks

They don't seem to be in stock there but I've emailed them, hopefully they can get some more.

A decent alternative is the brown ones but the ceramic ones have beefier pins.

... has a quite decent choice of sockets, although some of them quite expensive.

Have a look at these guys. They have a number of 7-pin sockets, you might find what you're after.

I bought a bunch of stuff from them and the service was good.
