I am designing a custom smart plug, and it's required to plug into a UK plug socket, and to expose a UK plug socket. For my first prototypes I dismantled timer sockets to get the brass parts, but now the project is moving towards production, I am trying to source them.
I have found places that supply the brass pins that go into the wall socket, but I can't manage to find a supplier of the folded brass sheet that forms the exposed socket. Can someone please tell me what this is called so I might have some more luck sourcing it?
Alternatively, if this core assembly can be sourced, the name for that would also be great.
I am assuming that they are such a standard part that I won't need to get them made custom.
