7 pin socket fit
« on: November 23, 2019, 11:53:10 PM »

My 7 pin sockets won't fit into the hole on the top-side of the chassis plate. Any issues taking a round file to this?

I also cracked ceramic on the bottom of the 7 pin socket. Will this cause any issues? (I've super-glued it back together for now).

Filing the hole a little bit is no problem.  I have notice occasionally that the bottom wafer on some of those ceramic sockets isn't quite round, and it can be a bit difficult to fit them in the holes.  The superglue solution shouldn't cause any problems.
