Standard Octal Socket Saver

If you tube roll octal base tubes, or have a tube tester and the octal socket get plenty of use, this inexpensive socket saver will save you plenty of work later if your main octal socket were to become intermittent. If you swap tubes in and out a great deal (as in a tube tester or amp where you tube roll) wear out this socket saver instead of your difficult to replace octal socket. This is for tubes like EL34, 6l6, KT88, 6SN7, etc. Well built and will last over thousands of tube changes!

Vacuum Tube Extractor Tool

If you tube roll or service vacuum tube equipment, you NEED this handy tool. This baby will pay for itself in saving you from burned fingers and smeared labels on NOS tubes, caused by trying to remove tubes by hand! Straight jaws for firm grip, spring steel construction, nickel plated, insulated jaws. Opens WIDE to accomodate even the largest tubes, and delicate enough for fragile glass antique tubes. Jaws are deep enough to grab the base of octal tubes, and insulated to gain a firm, yet careful grip on all-glass tubes. Can be used for extracting tubes, and re-inserting them, even in the most crowded chassis spaces.

Tube Extractor Tool

Vacuum tube custom fitted boxes

If you have a number of tubes, you need to protect them! Tubes rolling around in a drawer or tool chest are just accidents waiting to happen. Protect your valuable tubes with the correct size box. We have new, clean white boxes for sale that are the same boxes we use for the tubes we sell. They have a clever inside divider flap that cushions the tube and prevents it from rattling around in the box. These are made specifically for tubes, they are not recycled spark plug boxes or some other junk! Sizes are small, medium, and large. Small fits all small tubes from 396A, to 12AX7, 6DJ8, up to the longer EL84/6BQ5 and 6BM8. Medium fits most GT and metal octal base tubes such as the 6SN7, 6V6, 35Z5, 5Y3GT, etc. Finally, the large size has extra room to fit the largest KT88, 6550, 2A3, and 5U4G ST shape tubes and 245 globe shape tubes.

Small: $.25 each. Medium: $.35 each. Large: $.60 each
