8 pin octal socket saver. Commonly used in tube testers. Socket savers absorb the main wear and tear from many tube insertions and removals. It's much easier to replace a worn out socket saver than to replace the original socket.

Sorry for the bad question. Is the width of this socket saver LARGER than the Tung-sol base - it appears that it is bigger.

The socket saver would only be recommended for testing purposes or instances where you would be changing tubes frequently. These are not tube converters. We do offer power tube converters called Yellow Jackets which you can browse by visiting https://www.yellowjacketstc.com/

No, this would not work as a converter for EL84 tubes. You would want to check out our Yellow Jackets line for something more in line with what you are looking for.

There isn't any reason we can think of that this can't be used in a permanent/semi-permanent basis.
