I purchased some sockets from a gentleman in southern Minnesota and he was kind enough to include some extra odds and ends in case I needed them. I kept a couple items, but I will pass along the extras to someone who may need them.
There are several different items and I would prefer to send them to just one person to prevent a flurry of emails. Please review the list and let me know if you can put these items to good use.
1. Black Bakelite 4-pin tube socket, surface mount. Screw terminals are marked F, P, F, G and the number 450 is next to the G terminal. Base is 2 15/16" in diameter, collar is 1 7/8" in diameter, overall height is 1 15/16". 3 of 4 terminals still have the knurled nut.
2. Qty 2 new old stock National Company, Inc., SPP-9 Safety Plate Grip (ceramic plate cap connector). These are still in their original little plastic bags and have the red paper part number slip.
3. A new old stock National Company, Inc., 6 prong circular socket (ceramic). About the same physical size as an octal socket. Still in its original cellophane wrapping.
4. Qty 3 4-pin ceramic tube sockets. One is round and mounted with a wavy spring to a small rectangular metal plate. One is oval with two mounting screws holding a thin insulating spacer on the top surface. The last one is a stretched octagonal shape with two mounting holes on the long axis ends, 'Hammarlund' stamped on the bottom surface.
5. Qty 4 7-pin ceramic tube sockets with shield collars (no shields, though). 3 of the 4 look unused.
6. Qty 2 used ceramic octal sockets. These would need the wavy spring for mounting.
7. Qty 1 unused 7-pin ceramic socket for, say, an 829B tube. While the connections have never been soldered, the top ceramic surface could use a good cleaning.
These will be yours for the cost of a new small box ($1) and postage. If there is extra room I may stuff in some extra doo-dads. Upon receipt, if you feel the items are worth more than the cost of packing/shipping you can donate the difference to a legitimate charity.
