We're phasing out the Mill-Max TO-5 sockets in favor of these, which we had manufactured so that we can offer them at a lower price. Unfortunately, we don't have drawings of these, so we've included a link to the Mill-Max datasheet below for reference. These are functionally the same and are high quality, with gold-plated connectors inside each of the 3 pin sockets. These have 2 little plastic "feet" extending down on the bottom that the Mill-Max model does not have. The image on this page showing the bottom of the socket is underexposed (brightened up a lot) to show the detail on the black plastic, which otherwise would be impossible to see.

These high-quality gems are great for those who like to experiment with their fuzzes to find just the sound they want. This is a 3-pin, TO-5 transistor socket. These fit PCBs which are laid out for TO-5 and TO-39 transistors, such as 2n404, 2n130x, 2n3053, BC160, BC161, and many, many more.

The feedback we have gotten has been great since we started including these in some of our kits, such as the:
