Home Tube DIY Asylum

Do It Yourself (DIY) paradise for tube and SET project builders.

RE: I don't trust those chinese sockets too.

I am with TK, as those sockets are made with poor tolerances and QC. I had one socket where you could almost fully install an octal tube with the tube being misindexed. Once i had this problem where the tube would light up because contact was made with the filament but there would be no sound because the plate pin was not making contact. That had me scrambling around for a couple of hours before i noticed the issue. Who needs something like that?
