    Omega Enlarger lamp died! Need info

    I've got Dichroic colorhead on my D2 and the writing on the lamp says GE usa 12 amd 22.5v. On the other side it says Omega Part 471-029. Is this 250watts? It's got a smooth reflector like the one listed below.
    Freestylephoto.biz has a bunch but they are 24volt. All i care about is color and getting the same output as i had. Anyone know a source?
    Is the one below what i need?

    I consulted Dr. Google and found this listing. It indicates that the Omega D Dichroic used a 250W, 24v bulb, ANSI code ELC.

    If you call TopBulb.com and give them the Omega #, they will send the proper bulbs.

    I have a bunch at home, but they are not in Omega boxes.

    Without a Chromegatrol or the accessory volt stab on the rear of the power supply, you will blow bulbs pretty fast. The volt stab is about 1.5 " sq and 6 in long and mounts vertically on the back side. It has a perforated metal housing.

    Google 'Classic Omega Enlargers' and you will come across a web-site completely devoted to Omegas; it's run by a Harry somethingorother. He buys refurbishes and sells Omegas and knows everything that there is to know about Omegas.

    Hope that this helps,

    I have purchased several bulbs from Harry somethingorother and have been very pleased. The cost was reasonable and the service was great.

    Harry Taylor at www.classic-enlargers.com - I just acquired a D2, and he was
    very helpful to this darkroom rookie...
