Looking for a couple of the pre-made 6X5 diode replacement plugs. Just soldered diodes in on last projects but want something for tube sockets,dont want to spend time building my own. Someone on here used to sell them for a few bucks but cant remember who it was. Thanks

These go for a lot more than "a few bucks" (i.e., $24/each) but they're the only product that I've seen advertised as "plug and play" rectifier replacements:

Apparently, with above product no external B+ dropping resistor is needed. The device has a built-in circuit that emulates the forward voltage drop of the vacuum tube version.

If you're looking for someone to solder a couple of 1N4007 diodes into a gutted octal tube base, you might try running a WTB ad in the Classifieds section.
