[AMRadio] Need BC-1G 833 Tube Socket

When making the assembly of the two filament sockets on the bottom of 
an 833, I feel it is important to make it so at least one of them is 
"floating" and can move back and forth a bit in a slot or oversize hole 
in the insulating bar.  That allows some wiggling during tube insertion 
and removal, and allows the spacing between the pins to expand and 
contract with temperature.  If both are firmly fixed in spacing it 
could result in cracked tubes.
