Exodus 26:37 - Five Outer Pillars of the Tent of the Mishkan - Part 2

Exodus 26:37

37 And thou shalt make for the hanging five pillars of shittim wood, and overlay them with gold, and their hooks shall be of gold: and thou shalt cast five sockets of brass for them.
‎37 ‏וְעָשִׂ֣יתָ לַמָּסָ֗ךְ חֲמִשָּׁה֙ עַמּוּדֵ֣י שִׁטִּ֔ים וְצִפִּיתָ֤ אֹתָם֙ זָהָ֔ב וָוֵיהֶ֖ם זָהָ֑ב וְיָצַקְתָּ֣ לָהֶ֔ם חֲמִשָּׁ֖ה אַדְנֵ֥י נְחֹֽשֶׁת׃ ס
Just like Four Inner Pillars had the Silver Sockets, the Five Outer Pillars of the Tent also had sockets cast for them. But they were not of Silver, but of Copper(Brass).

Thus, there were Five Copper Sockets for Five Outer Gold Plated Pillars...

Here is a closer view upon the Sockets.
Please note how two(2) out of five(5) Sockets had a slightly different design: a special slit made in the back part of each of those Soeckets to accomodate the connecting Tent boards.

And here is a view from the top(at an angle) so that you can better see the inside of each Socket.
