I need a few of the 'old' three-pin round-pin plugs and sockets that were used in the UK a while ago - the brown bakelite ones.
If anyone knows of a source of 6 or so, please PM me.

Do they have to be Bakelite?
If not try the local electrical trade store as they re still used rated for 5 amps. TLC or SETS are a good bet and fairly easy to find in the south of england.
Thanks PW - No.
I've already had one v helpful PM, but I DO need the small sockets. TLC will sell the plugs, but I cannot find those.
PM appreciated if you can help?

2 amp or 5 amp? this (http://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Main_Index/Wiring_Accessories_Menu_Index/White_Mk_Accessories/Sockets_2_-_5_-_15_Amp/index.html) looks like it may sort you out.
Thanks to all for yr replies on this. It is size that matters(!) and the ones there are sadly too big, u_e.
Since this must be eternally boring for all those who are not into plugs and sockets, I will spare those good folk by closing this thread but would appreciate any further ideas by PM.
