Rated 5 out of 5 by honey Worked well for my project
I purchased three of these sockets to mount on a bar that's inside a cabinet that's used to heat up honey.
We keep bees and store the extracted honey in 5 gallon food grade buckets with gates to allow the honey to flow out for filling jars with honey.
Sometimes stored honey will crystallize, depending on the kind of honey and temperatures stored at. This doesn't hurt the honey but it will not flow out of the bucket.
Other times the honey just thickens and makes it hard to fill jars.
The cabinet holds a 5 gallon bucket and is heated with three 75 watt mini candelabra halogen bulbs. There is a thermostat that turns the lights off and on to maintain a 95 degree temperature in the cabinet.
After the honey is fully heated (sometimes takes a couple of days) it flows very nicely and makes it quick and easy to fill jars with honey so we can sell it.
These sockets worked great for this project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikeg49 works perfectly
After a long search for just the right socket that would work in our canister units for our church Sanctuary we finally found these candelabra sockets at 1000bulbs.com. They worked perfectly. As the installed units were old and plentiful replacing the whole system would have been costly, a luxury few churches can afford. These sockets fit the old unit with little alterations and went in fast.I recommend them to anyone.
