    my enlarger bulb just blew and...

    well the one that was in there was a 200w 24v halogen lamp.... my enlarger is a beseler 23c 2... with a color pack... if that makes a difference, its been modded to use the more modern halogen lamp... so is this right and where would i find a replacement, as i have never needed to replace it, nor did i mod it

    Thanks
    Chris

    Most likely that's an EJL bulb. You may or may not have a local source for it.

    Here's one internet source - obtained by Googling "EJL bulb":

    EDIT: buy two, and store the spare

    Buy three of them: One to replace the burnout, two for spares.
    That way, when the next one burns out (usually at the worst possible time) you can order the replacement at your leisure and still have a spare to keep you in business until the shipment arrives.

    Many lamps can be had for less than $10.00 apiece. At that price, you can't afford NOT to have spares on hand.

    Bring the burned out one with you. They'll match it up if they have it. At worst, they should be able to identify it for you exactly.

    I went to Ebay and bought 4 replacement lamps when mine went dark. The enlarger uses 2, and I hadn't burnt any out in 15 years, so I figure I'll be good for a while. They were <$10 each on ebay.

    replacments

    There is an unwritten law about items that are critical to a system. Never buy one replacement. buy two. that way the first one will never get lost or wear out.and the second one will sit on the shelf gathering dust /

    some info that may get someone out of a jam.

    I bought a s/h m805 few days ago, no lens board no neg carrier and shop owner said bulb blown. so i bought one from him 19 euro
    when i got home put in bulb an it blew. got out multimeter to check voltage and i was getting 19 which made no sense.
    as im 160 miles from nearest pro photo shop (dublin) i went looking for a bulb 24v 250 w reflector. none to be had

    however one shop had projector bulbs 24v 250w which they kept for schools at 8 euro . it was the same 2 pin type but without the reflector. I plugged it in and no problem, so i carefully scraped out the 'cement' from between the reflector an bulb of the old one and removed it. I slid the new one into the reflector and pushed the connector on and clipped it into place.

    Job done and at less than half the price and local too. now to make or buy the neg carrier an lens board an play with the toy!

    So if someone is in a jam and cant get a bulb quickly this may be a work around and possibly less expensive too. im not even sure if i will bother sealing it back with fire cement
