Sorry Allen, I thought you were commenting about the text you quoted referring to the EFN type.
Anyway, the message is: be careful, EFP=1,000 hr. , EFN=50 hr.
BTW, the eBay add for the "13139" lamp shows the picture of a faceted reflector lamp.
The real 13139 has a smooth reflector. Maybe the picture is just illustrative, not exactly the lamp for sale.
75 Watt, 12 Volt EFN Bulb
SKU: W-EFN | Ordering Code: EFN
Base: GZ6.35 Brand: Eiko
Diameter (in): 2.000

No worries, :)
Very good point on the smooth reflector, thank you for bringing that up. I just took it for granted that if it is the 13139, it will be smooth.
I have 5 on the way, so I will check them as soon as the arrive and report back for others thinking of stocking up.

They are the original lamp, smooth interior and labeled correctly. The service was good, the shipping was fast and reasonable priced for shipping these days.
$15.00 per bulb.
You may want to stock up, cause you sure can't beat that enlarger for 35mm.
And not bad price really, I paid around $8 for mine when they were not scarce at all.
