Re: A Vacuum Tube Curve Tracer for all Tek Semiconductor Curve Trace

Hey Dennis, this just occurred to me - if you can't find any off-shelf miniature tube style plugs, how about just cutting some pin stock to make them extra long, and jam them into a socket to form a male plug assembly. You should be able to solder the pins to the lugs on this socket, or epoxy it up to keep it together.

It would effectively start as a female-female adapter, with the loose pins joining two sockets face to face - one as an alignment jig, and the other to become the plug assembly once the pins are bonded to it somehow. Any base style that has reverse-axial symmetry could have plugs made in this way.
