8-pin valve socket

Chassis-mount valve socket, ceramic body, silver metal mounting ring

Not a lot to say about these sockets: ceramic body, chassis-mounting ring and a choice of 8 or 9 pins. These are two part socket, and you can use the mounting ring on the top or underside of the chassis to hold the socket in place.

The 8-pin socket requires a 27mm hole for the ceramic part, and the fixing slots in the mounting ring are 35mm apart. Use M3 hardware to fix the mounting ring to the chassis.
