Ken, of course what i posted makes no sense... You have no foresight!
if you have so much invested in your set up n can't find a new bulb or adapt something else... It'll still become a piece of junk in few years despite your best efforts to extend the life of an already old almost dead bulb. All you are doing is prolonging the inevatable...
So my point Ken, was to start figuring a way to adapt before it dies... That perhaps is a better solution Ken. How about wiring in a similar more availabe bulb? There is absolutely nothing else in the entire word to remedy this?.... Stupid!
Yeah very entertaining how close minded this concept really is.... Changing seats on the Titanic.... The ship is sinking Ken!
Oh btw when your bulb dies.. That beautiful system will be as worthless as all the other trash finds by the curbside.
