They should be in by the end of the month.
Luckily, only the one had to be filed, so it wasn't much trouble. They do look great though.
I don't have any sockets from the shop to compare the two but the vintage sockets I have they fit perfectly.
I will bring this up to Sloan. It is interesting that they work well in older sockets, bind in newer ones. It appears just a light filing is all they need. It is possible the castings are just a bit sloppy.
What tool is needed to purchase and what are the steps involved to use the tool to fix the problem. Bear in mind I really am a bit of an idiot with these things and would probably need an idiot guide lol
We'll find out what is wrong exactly and then hopefully be able to offer up replacements and exchanges for the affected ones. Not everyone will be affected since they appear to work on some of the sockets we have sold, be they modern or vintage ones we don't know.
Of course if you don't use sockets, you aren't affected at all.
I'll keep this thread updated.
Sloan has re-made the hat lights so they are now well fitting in the sockets.
If you have a milky white that does not seat all the way down into the socket, I will be offering a swap soon. This of course does not affect you if you are not using the sockets.
