Default Bulgin Female 3 pin mains plug approx. 22mm

I am looking for one of these as used for amplifiers, Ferrographs, etc.

According to the vernier (getting it in best I can) the diameter of the socket is between 22 and 23mm.

Many thanks

Nick

They are available on eBay. A bit expensive, but.....

You are a lucky man Andy . It might have stung a bit if you'd had to pay the going rate for them.

Cheers,

GJ

I left a box of at least 50 of those in a building which was being demolished in 2005, taking 2 or 3 'just in case'. Knowing what I now know, that stings a bit

I've had them years hanging ont shed wall and thought it about time I did something with them, I doubt I'll ever use them prefering to replace old mains chassis sockets with IEC kettle type. As you say they are going for daft prices, saw one at 48!

Ahh, they old what if Mark. Dare say if you had got all 50 you'd have been fed up with them over the interveining years always being in the way, I sometimes feel the same way about the old classic motorbikes and amplifiers I've had. Ce la vie.

Andy.
