I found them at antiqueradiosandparts.com but they want a lot of money for shipping so I'm still looking for a source. Can someone help me out?

Thanks,
Rich

Greetings to Rich and the Forum:

I have something close (see photo). However, please note the differences: There is no cardboard insulating sleeve and the socket has solder terminals, not wires. The socket is insulated from the spring mounting, however.

If this will work for you, I can cut one off and put it in the mail to you. Let me know.

Regards,

Many thanks to Jim for hooking me up with a dial lamp socket! Someone before me had eliminated the dial lamp from the circuit, I suspect because the tuning dial is cardboard and the opening for the lamp socket was in bad shape:

So, I designed a bracket to slip over the top of the dial to provide a solid mount for the socket and printed it on my 3D printer:

Thanks Reece - that link does not work for me, but Antique Radios and Parts is the site I referenced in my original post...they want $9.50 for shipping so I was looking for an alternative.
