One end is soldered to one tube but the other is just floating in the air.

Actually, pin 8 was there but the fact that it looks like nothing was 
ever soldered to it on one of them is the mystery.  There are two pins 
missing from one of the sockets and they are grid and/or plate but I 
don't recall.

What I need is a complete octal for the xtal and one that I can salvage 
two pins from.  But if off the shelf sockets can be cannibalized, I can 
buy them but I doubt it.
