"Does Exeter tenor new stock (WBF) have a socketed stay, or have they moved
the radius slide, or replaced it conventionally ?"

It't got a Hastings Stay placed centrally over the end of the headstock,
held in place by a couple of hefty steel plates bolted through the stay bolt
holes of the stock and rising up either side of the stay, with further bolts
passing through them and the stay.
