Thanks.  No problem... just gave it a bit of a twist and it pushed right 
up.  Unfortunately, I need that one for the cathode but it proves that 
replacing pins is a lot easier than replacing the socket.

Now the question is.... where do I get another socket with removable pins?

I also need a complete socket for the crystal holder.

Anyone out there have such critters and willing to part for a price or
