what to do with old 44 47 bulbs

I have lots of old bulbs. Some good GE44, lots of Chinese 47s and some made in Holland. Sorting through them all. Should I recycle or bin or does anyone repurpose them? Some are still working fine so will keep some but not all.

What do you do with them?

get them quick, cause as mentioned they aren't being made anymore.

is there a led version of the #455?

 

Way ahead of you, I have already ordered a couple of boxes :)

Pbr didn't have the flashers a few months ago when I last ordered. Anyone know if there is an alternative as I need some?

 

Maybe ask @KJS if that is something he now has an alternative for....?

He should be able to email you his very competitive price list and what he has available....

#455 are still available, All my EM back boxes have flashers in them. Just Google #455 6.3v flasher globes. Heaps come up.

Also a little tip Americans call them #455 Blinker globes.

Same.

For the ones that may work I built up a little test bench using a AA battery holder and globe holders for 44 and 555. If the globes I have removed from whatever game don't measure up in brightness (GE, Eiko or whatever) off to the bin they go.

 

The dud ones as mentioned above I use for dummy plugs.
