    Strong 813 test socket

    Hi all!
    I built this socket from 12mm thick Teflon round rod. Screws are M3 stainless.
    The purpose is to have a strong, stable, accurate and well insulated test socket.
    I needed something able to resist to temperature and voltage, above all the socket have to keep locked the tube even in vertical position with no yielding.

    Material needed:

    - 1,5mm Teflon slice, 70mm dia
    - Heptagonal pattern
    - Spring contacts x7
    - M3x10mm screws and nuts x7


    - Lathe
    - table drill
    - Bits and basic equipment
