I ordered a side mount lamp. socket to go into an old lamp. This type of socket is difficult to find, but Paxton's had it! Received the socket very quickly after ordering, and, while I have not yet installed it, it looks to be a good quality socket.
I was faced with restoring an antique floor lanp, with two brass fixtures. I searched and searched many sources, until finding these. Rejoice. They worked perfectly. Wiring was a puzzle, but I was able to thread everything and now I have a fully functioning lamp, back to original function. Thank you. Lots of other good, hard to find items in the store, also. I will be back.
