from Not at all what is appears to be!!!I ordered some of these tube sockets based upon the above picture. What I received does NOT have pin terminals, but wire-through terminals with holes, the same kind of terminals as on the PE 055-509. They also have a large-diameter center terminal which will need to be cut off or a hole drilled in the circuit board to fit it. As I was designing my own circuit board, I accommodated the pinless sockets, but if you need these for an existing printed circuit board with standard PC holes, IT WON'T WORK!!! (It wasn't worth my while returning them to PE.)As such, I recommend these well-made sockets, but only if you can think "outside the box". Otherwise, get some other sockets.
