Here in the UK it is almost impossible to obtain a dual gang 2pin U.S. style Chassis Socket, and I need one to replace a broken socket in a vintage Radford SC22 Preamp., where it provides one switched and one unswitched AC outlet. In the interests of authenticity I wish to keep to the original type connector, which must be available from many U.S. parts suppliers, if someone can provide contact details. Thanks in advance from Mike

Without seeing a picture of it, it's difficult to give any very precise help. The make and/or model of the module would be extremely helpful, of course.

The distributors that I usually use are http://www.mouser.com , http://www.digikey.com , and http://www.alliedelec.com . But it might be a bit difficult trying to find it "blind", through their websites. With their paper catalogs, especially Mouser's and Allied's, which have lots of photos, it would be a much quicker process. But you could download the relevant PDF catalog pages, from mouser.com . Digikey also has PDFs of individual catalog pages. I'm not sure about Allied.

In Mouser's catalog # 362, you'd probably want pages 952 through 969. But a quick glance through them didn't immediately turn up any complete units matching your description.
