I have always liked socket plugs, but have seen the early ones (wooden handles) go for over $400.00. I decided to make some -- guys, need some feed back on this one. It also has the extension cord. These are probably should be used to display with your fans. (Probably before 1905.) See Photos.

Ron, FWIW...they were making Edison base wood handle plugs into the teens. Those are the most common to find.  The reason is the Edison threaded base became the standard.  That's why those T-H and Westy base plugs are far and few between.  :D
