Looking for #49 dial lamps for a Zenith radio.
Lee in Simcoe.
Amazon sells them
Yes thanks but what I see on Amazon is 10 bulbs for $30.00, I’m hoping to find two for less money. Did you see a smaller quantity?
I have been buying dial bulbs from Sal’s in the US (much cheaper!) – he only advertises a limited selection but he went out of his way to source other types for me. Of course shipping and fx rates push up the price, especially if that is all you would be ordering (I tagged the bulbs and some other stuff onto a capacitor order).
Locally, Amre supply has a reasonable selection of bulbs of this nature:
First I’ve heard of Amre and only an hours drive. Often in Hamilton for medical stuff so a great to know, thanks.
I buy from Sal’s too so can do the add on. I keep a list of need to buy at my work bench and send it off when shipping is justified.
Yikes – AMRE are cheap for the bulbs but the shipping is a killer unless your buying quite a few! – “AMRE Supply offers a standard shipping charge of $15.99 per order to all provinces in Canada and $59.99 to all territories in Canada”. Good to know there is a Canadian supplier though.
An hour’s drive so say 90 kilometers. if you can get by with 10 liters per hundred kilometers thats about 18 liters round trip at $2.00 a liter that’s $36.00 ??????????
John — that’s why I would only go when we are going for a medical test. I may browse some of the antique markets and see a donor radio with these bulbs and score some other parts to make it worthwhile.
Sensible, especially with today’s gas prices.
Good luck with your hunting !
