I'd also like an 18w sox lamp and socket to see if I can get it to run off of an 14-15-20w choke.

I'd like bundles of ken rad and ITT needs as well as a 250 watt streetlight for Mercury bulbs.

Here is mine
Colored S6's
More S6's in various voltages
An large mogul based 1500 watt incandescent bulb
Colored  F15T8 & F20T12's in ( especially the gold and green ones)
Vintage explosion / vapor proof fixtures ( made by Killark, Crouse Hinds , Russell & Stoll and Appleton) with clear or colored jar globes and protective cage
Benjamin 3 & 4 light socket clusters from the 20's
Magnotronic branded incadescent bulbs ( etch with the 2 gears like silverliner Dave has)
GE,Sylvania & Westy 40 watt A21's in yellow, red & green
From the UK/Great Britain I'd like the Pygmy bulbs,some GLS with the BC bayonet caps and their vintage BC lamp holders.

If wishes come true,

I like to have a reductor lamp who belongs to that reductor fitting I have (14Volt 25Watts)

A Just & Hannaman Sintered Wolfram lamp.

A Zerconium lamp (one of the first series)

If possible an original old Edison carbonlamp ca. 1882-1884

The first Mercury lamps (like Philips made pre WW2)

That would be nice.

I bet a specialty lighting store (batteries + bulbs in the US may have them) or check an auto body shop or even a hardware store. I have seen ace hardware as well as other stores sell vintage fluorescent tubes still in original packing, so you may be able to have some luck.

I need to find some Circlarc tubes.  Would love to find an old case of them someone had stashed away.
A few cases of F100T17s would be awesome to discover also!

Some of these are things I need, others are just "wants".  I've posted here before but here's others:
-GE F96T12/SP65 and F40SP65.  In both full wattage and Watt-Miser versions.  Same for other less common T12 colors.  (Or ANY 75 watt F96T12 slimline lamps for that matter)
-Cool green lamps
-A 400w or 175w Westy Lifeguard, preferably in some other phosphor than /DX, and preferably a cleartop...
-a 100w (or 175w) MV NEMA; not just your '80s/90s/00s box-store "yardblaster" fixture; I have one already...i.e Westinghouse RMA-10
-A 50w HPS ballast
-a 175w MV/MH ballast
-a 1000w MV/MH ballast
-PL13 lamps in some color other than /827.
-A case of Duro-Test Vita-Lite 4' and 8' slimline PowerTwist lamps. Same for the 2' and 3' versions.
-8000k Sylvania 'Skywhite' F32T8s
-A slew of magnetic or electronic F40T12 and F32T8 ballasts.
-a REAL, authentic, vintage preheat fixture, preferably a 2, 3, or 4 lamp shoplight.
-Westinghouse OV25 "Silverliner" 400w MV cobrahead
-Wide-Lite F-series 1000w MV flood
-And so much more...LOL
