Default Where could I find these sockets???

Hi All, I need two more of these sockets but don't know where to look. Any ideas? They are for the 6C33C tube.

Wow, that's a tall order.

Looks like you may have the only two in existence.

Where in the world did you find those? Do you own a MIG?

Maybe "wavebourn" will know something . He's the resident Russky. Of course you do know the ceramic part is just a standard "septar" socket.

That is a PLK7-1 type Russian standard socket for a power triode valve.
Maybe try one of the Russian valve suppliers? Sovtec etc?? Or an importer like PM Tubes???

Wow, that is either:

1. Original Steam Punk (before there was a name for it) -or-
2. The inspiration for R2D2

GSTUBE was plenty of these sockets some time ago, as below:
(Seems the stock will be re-plenty ASAP the winter allow.)

But they no had this fancy aluminium top cap, which is a military acessory for mobile aquip.
ALso these claw pins are not good, it present bad contact after some time.

The best pins are the collet/glove type, as in this socket below:
''GSTube.com''. Tubes, sockets etc. Search result for <u>plk7-collet</u>

Yes, they are from a Mig fighter jet. I happened upon them a number of years ago and have been looking for a second pair since. They will be part of a steam punk Tim Mellow OTL someday. I am almost done with two chassis made from Bronze plate with brass riveted copper plates holding the corner together. I don't know about R2D2, but they do look like the Andriod guy.

By the way, here is the stand that will hold the two chassis. I made this to hold my John Hogan line stage and 300B amp, but I sold the amps and kept the stand. The power side for the OTL will be on the bottom and the signal side will be on the top. I think the Bronze chassis will look great on the stand.

I think having all four 6C33C tubes in those Mig retainers would really set it off.

That will be awesome. Congrats on the design.

I really hope you find a matching pair of sockets, but that's going to be the hard part.
