Does anyone have a source to buy "socket test extenders" to use to check voltages above the chassis? I did a search on google and ebay and did not find any.
Thanks

Gary

Hi Frank

I sent you a PM message a few days ago wanting to buy the extenders. Did you receive the PM?
Thanks

Vector made them. Just do a Google search on "Vector tube socket test adapters" and you will find what you are looking for. Google found them at PTOP, too, at the bottom of the Tube Adapters page.

You can also look for a set produced for the military with a part number of MX-1258/U. These show up on eBay semi often. They usually sell for $ 100-150 but you get several different socket types and pin counts--perfect for radio service work. I got mine for $ 60 via eBay and this is probably closer to a swap meet price too.

Thanks everyone for your help. I am in the process of buying some from FrankB. Whenever possible, I like to buy from forum members.
