ok, bulbs next.
this was my dads old hi intensity reading light he used on his drafting table. its the kind with the telescoping arm and 2 intensity settings. it is heavy and was made in bridgeport ct. even has a cigarette lighter in it! lol.
everyone smoked back then!

anyway, it is very strict as to what bulbs it can handle due to the heat of the unit.
i took this info off the sticker on the side.
its the size of a typical turn signal bulb with opposing prongs, not alternating.
any electricians have a bulb catalog or (on line) catalog source for this one? again, the bulb/battery store guys just looked like they got caught naked in public when i showed it to them.
let the games begin!

There are bunches of them available everywhere I looked. Go to Amazon.com and search for 1133 lamps.

Guys, it’s 110v and just has a similar socket base.


BTW - Bobski, you have a horrible bulb and battery store. I’ve taken some far weirder stuff into mine and they knew it right off.

Maybe you need to test the output of the socket. It might be 120 volt input but a lower output voltage. You did say it had a cigarette lighter built in. Is it the same type that was in a car?

According to this catalog (https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://www.csobeech.com/files/GE-BulbCatalog.pdf&ved=2ahUKEwjb4tyzhqbxAhUM6J4KHYUTB_IQFjAMegQIBhAC&usg=AOvVaw045MTipVWrfqSfpBH6IwB8) an 1133 bulb is a 6.2v bayonet-socket bulb rated at 24W.

I'd guess the numbers you pulled off the side of the lamp are not specific to the bulb.

I'd spend 2$ on an 1133 bulb and move on with my life. 1133 is a specific bulb with voltage and power designated and not just a style.

I came late to the party. Next time go to an electrical supply house and the counter man can fix you up. Take the part if you have it and it speeds up identification of the correct replacement part.

did all that. finding old school skilled labor is harder than finding the bulb.
