Hi Ralph sent you a couple of messages and no response back.May 18, 2022 at 4:51 am #18596
Hope you had a good day at the cabin. Upon closer examination I think the ones you have are still too small. These socket holes are massive, which still places the mounting holes too far apart. I really appreciate the effort you have put nto this, but it looks like I bombed out again. I am going to try to rebuild the old ones. Lets see how that woks out for me. This radio has placed me much over budget in time and money. The worst radio I have ever worked on.

No problem, but i gave you the measurements and you said it was correct and then i took it out for you. Wish i would have know earlier i would have left it in the chassis.

Hello Again Sterling
Hope you had a good time at the cabin. This is the second time today I made a post to you. I made one very early this AM and it did appear in this particular post Title, but when I went back to it later today it had dissappeared. I also made a post to John Greenland earlier and it also disappeared. Not certain what going on with the site. Anyway, after looking more closely at the measurements, I am certain that even the ones you have are too small. I am already in the process of fabricating a new socket, using the top-side tube plate and the old pin clips. I crafted two disks (if I can call them that) from counter-top Formica and glued them together with crazy glue, as Formica is a little to thin. All rhat remains is to insert the tube pin clips, and I will have a socket that is far superior and stronger than the orginal wafer sockets. And too, it will look like like the real thing. Sorry to mess you guys around on this. But these darn wafer sockets were made a bit on the cheap side and very flimsy to say the least. And as for the socket holes in the chassis, they are massive on this radio.

Now ain’t this crazy, the first post I made this AM has re-appeared. And your post from this morning, was not there a few minutes ago and now it shows up????
Maybe the site manager will pick up on this. Maybe sometime soon I can make it up to you guys, in some way,shape or form.
