    Anyone know what I might use 'off the shelf' from the hardware store to cover unused tube socket holes in salvaged chassis? I could cut and fabricate covers from some sheet, but I'm feeling lazy and wanted something I didn't need to fuss with.

    If visible cosmetics are not an issue, I just cut pieces of aluminum foil tape and place them over both sides of the hole. Cheap and easy... and you can remove if necessary.

    I went to HD and found some knock-out caps in the electronics department- when I asked for the sink caps in plumbing the guy actually suggested the electric ones since they come in more sizes. Thanks for the great suggestions!
