If you top mount the socket it will not sit flush the folded metal
tags do not recess into the ceramic frame. Otherwise there ok.

Solidly built , and can stand High Temp , High Powered Tubes

Decent quality part. I mount these using a 1 inch knock out punch. Sometimes the pins will fall through, and the solder will flow into the pin, the pin also will sometimes require crimping to make a better connection to my older octal tubes. So solder carefully, control the excess solder, curve in a corner of the pin with a sharp instrument, and life is good with these ceramic octal tube sockets. Pry out the tab that holds the pin in the socket if you see one that is a little to slim. Other than these small issues, I'll keep buying.

Disappointed here, insufficient documentation. The drawing shows the diameter of the ceramic socket but not the hole diameter needed for flush mounting from underneath the chassis. I'd of known this wouldn't work for me.

Originally purchased item P-ST8-209MIP another octal socket for a Fender Bassman repair, but the chassis hole was not big enough (1 1/4") so I ordered item P-ST8-807, which was cheaper and fit the 1" hole in the Fender chassis. Worked great for the Bassman.

This type of tube socket is exactly what I needed for a project I am constructing using older sweep pentodes (17DQ6). They seem to be well made and will serve my purpose. I plan to buy more.

It's a good idea to close the prongs with a sharp instrument all the way as I did have a failed contact, other than that, I'll keep buying these. Top mount w/ a 1 inch hole needed. Look very nice!

Fits perfectly for Fender BF and SF. If your amp is old enough to overhauling and it has tube rectifier, replacing rectifier's socket is mandatory in order to prevent potential arch between pins. ceramic base increase reliability.

Excellent quality. Required slightly larger hole than socket it was replacing and couldn't be mounted from below chassis, but hole size was fine for mounting on top of chassis. Worked fine for my application.
