Default 5 pin base for MW6/2

I would like to get hold one or two 5 pin bases for the MW6/2 so I can have a play with this CRT, if anyone has any being un-loved that are in need of a good home, please let me know of costs.

Or if not available can one suggest what the type would be called for a search on the web The valve museum says they were a special?

I recall experimenting with one of these MW6/2 projection CRTs. I found that soldering directly on to those side contacts was a straightforward, if unorthodox, way of making the connections.

Thanks for the information, a last resort perhaps.

Just a thought, I think the the base/holder you want is known as a CT5 which are not very common, does anyone know if the more common CT8 can be used if the pins line up by ignoring the unwanted connections.

Aren't the diameters completely different?

Around 3/4" CT5 an 1 1/8" CT8

Just guessed on sizes

Cheers

Thanks for the correction I have only ever seen a CT8 in the flesh so I did not know they were different in diameter.
