There are two pieces that slot into each other to connect the handslide (tenon side--male) to the bell section (socket side--female) and are secured with a nut (for Kings and Benge trombones this is on the handslide). I'm in need of the threaded female socket that solders onto the gooseneck that begins the bell section of a King 606 student model (or Benge 170). I have the handslide assembly and the majority of the complete bell section already (the bell flare, the tuning slide assemblies, the gooseneck and all the braces).
I only need to find that little female tapered mama-jama so I can get this slide onto this bell!

It might! I’m hoping to get the socket that ISNT a 1-piece socket-curved-brace (like the 3B or Tempo). Is it for the bigger bell’d Tempo?

It's called a slide receiver, looks like C-S is out of stock, but Allied might have one.
I can email them & see if they have any.

My tech used to repair/rebuild horns for Cleveland Public Schools. He probably has a few parts horns around. Let me know if you want me to ask him what he has and at what price, or PM me if you want his contact info so you can check with him directly. That said, around here I sometimes see complete King 606s selling on Facebook and Craigslist for as low as $30, often $50. Have you seen what you can get locally?
I'm not a complete idiot, some parts are still missing! :D

Thanks for looking out, gang! I’d love to get one used if possible (or I’d have already ordered one from Allied). There doesn’t seem to be anyone selling beaters locally. This is just a project horn I’m tinkering with on the side, so I’m just trying to hoard my dimes. I’ll PM you, Greg for you buddy’s contact info. Thanks everybody.
