    When using R-40 bulbs, be sure to get flood blubs - not spot bulbs. The floods give a more even spread, at least in my shop.

    All my hardware store has is the heat lamp one with the silvered base and the clear glass on top.

    I called our local small-town electrical supply store: Doylestown Electric: (215-348-9074, ask for parts), and asked, " How much is an R-40 300 Watt bulb, regular base?"

    Their answer: "About $8 and we have plenty of them in stock."

    I find it hard to believe, though it is obviously true, that this would be a difficult item to get.

    I went to Home Depot looking for R40 300W and they were out. I went across the street to Menards and asked the guy in the lighting section and he said they had nothing like that and he had never heard of it. Luckily, when he moved aside, I saw that he was standing directly in front of the R40 300W watt bulbs, so I bought one. I think it was $9. I think they labelled it as a "utility light" or something like that ("work light" maybe).

    I hang it in a silver reflector about 4 feet above the paper and my times are usually in the 10-20 second range.

    They seem to be available around here.

    Best,

    UPDATE: New glass, new bulb, new times.

    I got a single pane window glass for my frame, and a 120W R40 flood bulb. With the light 24" above my frame, I was able to get printing times in the neighborhood of 8-12 seconds depending on my negs. Very happy now!
