The correct answer may be yes--I've never tried an 811A in an 866 socket. Do
the 811A's have the alignment pin on the side like an 866A?

Either way, a regular 4-pin socket (ceramic preferred of course) also works
just fine. The same socket that holds your type 80 rectifier in your 1932
Philco, works just fine for the 811A.

I got "tricked" on a socket I bought for my 866 supply.  I thought all 4 pin
ceramic sockets were the same as long as the hole size was the same. 
  I bought a pair of Johnson types only to find they were to big by about a
half inch.  I had to rearrange things to get it in.

So, I still need one of the smaller ones and will use the two Johnson ones
for the 811's if they fit.

It looks like what I need is on the back of the Fair Radio catalog but I
have to call to make sure.
