modern day bubblers
« on: December 16, 2013, 08:53:40 am »
ok I have bought many sets from the U.S.A. to use here in the U.K. I use a step down transformer for the purpose, i replace the present day bubble lights when they blow. im not sure if they are  c7 or c6? well i open the case and replace after the holidays those that have blown  on my set up in the uk, does anyone know where i can purchase spare bulbs now please? or where I can purchase modern day bubblers cheap for me here in the U.K. Thanks.

what bulbs are you looking for?
The c7 bubble lighs use a S6 bulb that has a longer base.
I learned from Paul who had lions den that you could take a standard S6 and put a drop of soider on the tip of it to get it to work.
In some of the C7 bubble light I have repaired there was short T4 bulbs with a longer base that will replace a C7 bubble light bulb.
The C7 replacement bulbs have a longer base on them
Some times you can find them at a light bulb sulppy house.
Right now I believe every one is looking for some on who can sulppy.

Ronald many thanks for the reply, thought it had fallen on deaf ears, I suppose it is the S6 bulb I am looking for do they fit the modern day bubblers? if so any chance of a supply chain with cheap postage? they normally get their hand in with postage costs Ronald?

Ronald these are the lights I have http://bulbcollector.com/forum/index.php?topic=978.0

This is the seller that imports some the replacement bulbs into this country.

They sell new c6 and c7 bubble lights and tubes and replacement lamps to go into the bubble lights. These lights are of her  own design she had the mould made for them.
This person is the one  were Paul  Schofield at lions den bought his bubble lights and bubble light tubes from
He also got the halos ,plactic bells ond other plastic parts  from her.
she has sold out of some of the c6 light bulbs.
still has some c6 listed.
this is who I would watch to by lamps for bubble lights and other light bulbs.
Ronald

I buy from her direct. She is out of the e12 base bubble lights right now.
On ebay she is listing 25  c7 bubble lights for $50 a set of 25.
This includes the top and bottom half of the base the bubble tube and the lamp to go into it.
Not a bad deal.
