Default 5 pin octal tube socket

Help

I need a 5 pin version of the socket on the right for some adapters I want to make. So I need a 5 pin round type socket to fit in a 8 pin octal base. All I am finding is the 5 pin ceramic on the left which I do not want.

Hi,

why not just leaving the three pins you don't need unconnected? Or pulling 'em out of a stock socket? I think octal sockets with only five connectors are not available.

Best regards!

Look at the white socket and you will see the pin orientation is different otherwise I would have.

As the international octal socket provides a 45 degree angle between all pins, you'll never find a version of it fitting into a UX5 socket with a 90-90-60-60-60 degree pin arrangement.

Best regards!

Well, I've had amplifiers in the past with round 5 pin sockets for the 807 tubes so there should be some out there.

BTW, not "Octal"... "Medium 5-pin" or UY5 (sometimes incorrectly called UX5 - UX = 4).

Well, Burnedfingers, if you'd asked for UX5 instead of octal sockets, it would have been much easier to understand you...

Best regards!

This is what I wrote in post #1. How could I be any clearer?
