Hello Sterling

Attached find a couple of pictures of the sockets , one shows a standarad size socket that I have mountd in the tube opening, with one screw so as I can continue working on the radio. This particular socket is of course not native to this set, but thr rivet holes are the same as the standard Octal Sockets used on all Rogers radios of this vintage, that I, myself have seen. The first pic shows the large problem socket, and a similar, but smaller socket as used in this radio. The size difference is noticable. Rivet holes are much further apart.
I know Dan in Calgary has restored many old these DeForest Crosley/ Rogers Radios. So Dan if your tuned in, have you ran into this problem?
