Tungsten bulbs are to be phased out, here in Ontario, by 2012. I am afraid that enlarging lamps will become all but unavailable, as they are already a niche-niche market. Has anyone tried any of the warm white (about 2700°K) fluorescent bulbs in an enlarger? I am about to "test drive" a couple, and see how they work. Have any APUGers tried this yet? Also, one of my enlargers is a venerable Omega B-22XL, which uses a PH/111A bulb, way too small to be replaced with any flavour of fluorescent bulbs now being made. I have searched for a replacement on the General Electric website, but there is nothing else available. There are, however, two other bulbs which might (I say might) work. They both have the same base as the PH/111A (a single contact bayonet, base type BA-15s), and the same voltage, but different wattages and lamp shapes. And, they are not frosted, which means a diffuser would have to be added in the lamphouse. The lamps are an ANSI code CEM (GE product code 43330), and an ANSI code CDD (GE product code 29257). Has anybody tried these lamps, or anything similar? Please let me know! Yes, I could bring the lamps in from another Canadian province, but all of the others will most probably follow Ontario's lead, with the possible exception of our friends in Alberta, which is the last vestige of real democracy in our country. Or I could bring them in from the U.S., but importation of these bulbs will probably be banned as well. Any ideas out there? Please pardon the rant. If you don't like it, feel free to flame me...but be prepared to be flamed right back! Born in Quebec...live in Ontario..but an Albertan at heart.
