In the video below Peter shows you how he made an UX5 vacuum tube socket using the 3D printer at local hackerspace, Tkkrlab in Enschede, the Netherlands.
I've made this socket for a fellow member of the hackerspace, so he could use his VT76 tube, i've also made sockets for the UX6,B7G/miniature and B9D/magnoval tube bases for use in my own amplifiers, for the miniature bases the process is a bit different, no cover plate is made and old connectors removed from an ATX power supply connector are used.
