    The white ceramic plug that holds the 250 watt ELC/E lamp, has caused carbon build up to one of the bulbs stems, and will occasionally cease working. I'd like to replace it, but have locally not been able to find that sized ceramic plug to enable a proper fit, against the tensioner. Any suggestions where I might shop for one of these plugs? Thanks.

    I bought a Super Chromega II Dichroic head to slap on my old DII and that white socket was burnt so the lamp wouldn't work.
    The seller send me a few but I found they are widely available luckily.

    It's an easy fix.
