Socket Savers?
11/03/11 at 13:09:23
 
A while back, I had a prolem with some of my tubes fitting in my tube saver, so I bought some socket savers from (I think) Antique Electronics. Can't remember if it was RivieraRanch or someone else who recommended those, but whever it was, thanks! Today, I received a promo from TubeMonger for some rather higher end NOS socket savers. Anyone have any experience with these?

What I had were some adapters that allowed using a 5Z3 (4-pin) in place of a 5U4.

These socket savers you refer to are perhaps over engineered. They look like a tuxedo. It is fine that they use NOS components, but frankly they are over priced for what they are. You could get a new socket put in for what they are charging.
