Sockets are not universal, and while different tube types may fit into a socket, they may not work properly in that particular unit. Tube sockets were usually mounted in holes on a sheet metal chassis, and components such as wires were hand soldered under each socket. In the 1930s, tubes commonly had a connection to the control grid through the top of the tube, which was connected by using a clip that had an attached wire lead. Later, some tubes, especially those used as radio frequency powered amps, had the plate lead protrude through the envelope. Tubes with the plate brought through the cap were able to run at higher voltages. Tubes like the RCA 6H6 tube and tube socket set typically had a circular array of four to seven pins, with adjacent pairs of larger pins for heater/filament connections.
