On the 6080, just grab the glass and pull.

I've replaced a decent number of the sleeve sockets also since I do repairs of tube gear as a small side business.  With the fork type contacts, at least it's very easy to get in there with a pick and bend them tight again.

Thanks for the advice PB. Still a bit wary of pulling on the glass. Just had a go but didn't pull very hard. There is just a fraction of movement, just perceptible, between the glass and the metal collar and that makes me wary too. I don't fancy a handful of broken glass.

Between Dan, PJ, and I, we have to have 100+ years of pulling tubes out by the glass.  I can't ever recall one just breaking from being removed.

The metal collar just floats on the base inside it, held on to it with a crimp. Because of that it's not really a structural element. I have removed and replaced them in the past.
