How much interest is there
« on: January 14, 2015, 07:19:38 pm »
How much interest is there in c7 and c6 replacement light bulbs.
There is one company that does make the c7 bulb .
 I believe this is one of there stock bulbs they make ,they maker bubble lights also.
The problem is the number of light bulbs you would have  to purchase
.C6 light bulbs are still made . I priced some last summer  import.

Starman they will send some samples. I,m not sure how many.
I do not do ebay any more.
Ebay has to many people who do not know the product they are selling.
I have seen to many ads for rare bubble lights that turned out to be lights from Lowes last year.
To many ads for rare blow molds that were not.
I stay as far away from it as I can.

If I sell them it would sell them from my site  mail order.
I have the domain for my company it It is partly set up.
 I had a 200 gig hard drive crash,  and like a fool I did not have a good back up
Christmas lights and ho trains are my hobby.
What we will be setting up to do is cermanics.
We have 500 molds 2 kilms.
Not sure what molds we have we got a deal at a estate sale.
Was to late for the Christmas lights

Ron,
Would be nice to see pictures of the samples when you get them.  I would even buy a few to see them in person.

Not sure what flat top c7 look like.
 In the C7 bubble light I have relamped there were,
 s6 shape our t4 shape  bulbs with a e 12 base 120 volt 6 watt
.
I have relamped most styles of bubble lights. there are a few I do not have, some of the rare ones .

The only flat top bubble light bulb I know of  was for the c6 light string it had a e10 base 15 volt 5 watt bulb
these were made by GE and used in the noma,royal, usa, reliant band c6 light strings
Paramount used a globe shaped bulb in there bubble lights in there sauser c6 light not sure what the latter
style use I do not have any yet

The only c-7 flat tops that I know of came in the Christopher Radko reproduction paramount lights.  The original c-7 and c-6 have round bulbs.

The paramount were made with the s6 shape light bulb.
 I have some in my collection with this bulb.
[That I need the plastic ring for.]
The reproductions are made from the same mold the original were .
I have been told if you move the tube up the s6 will fit , but I do not know this for a fact.
