Decorative incandescents as big as 1000w mercs! Yet only like 60w. Guess how much they cost?

The front window display of Light Bulbs Unlimited in Sherman Oaks. Look at the big PS52, BT56, and R57 lamps! They are only about 60w despite the physical size, and they have medium skirted bases. Guess how much they cost?

$35.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

That is a cool window display!

The strip of bulbs along the bottom with just a couple lit... do those travel/chase along the strip?

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

I reckon more than US $ 70 Dave....how else would you sell a load of BT-56 bulbs left over from the plant in Bath, New York State?

I'm starting to see lots of similar things hare on this side of the "Duck Pond" too...reflector lamps with no silvering but white coated passed of as "Mushroon" type K's, GU-10 Mains voltage MR-16's with no dichroic coating and the reflector externally sandblated....

These are all the over runs of obsolete parts, bulbs, caps, reflector assemblies etc., that are being dumped in China to see how the Chinese can use them up?

We just got our new LED streetlights the other day...a $300 die cast 14w unit with a potted gear box, CdS cell dusk switch and some varistors to "protect it"....it replaced a 43w PL-T CFL unit not 18 months old, that replaced a Sylvania B224 with an MBF/U 80 inside... It was one of about 20 replaced within 200 yards of my home. The high pressure sodium Roadsters are surviving....for now....

Glenorchy is just awash with these now, but the Council did announce a "changeover blitz". Apparently the Hobart City Council is also dusting them about, but I not been "across the border" to look yet.
The Eastern Shore Municipality of Clarence has not changed any, still lots of B224's and B333's with 50 and 80w mercs over there! They did not announce any "LED Blitz".

Also, the first LED retrofit GLS appeared in our local Woolworths Supermarket appeared...Philips devices in 7, 9 and 14w ratings with prices comparable to CFLi.

So the prophecy is coming true...

I think we all have to get ready for loads of old H.I.D. being dumped by electrical wholesalers, particularly at the end of financial year when they can write them off the books.

Most of the Shops now use LEDs, Most of the streetlights are LED, LEDs just appeared in the Supermarket to oust CFL's....and this is Hobart, Tasmania, 43* South with the Southern Ocean on three sides.

I think the writing is on the wall for everything else....

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Interesting to see these lamps, anyway in the UK you can buy the 100 watt Spiral Filament Lamp in the BT56 Bulb for £40 GBP (about $60 USD) including Postage

@globecollector I too have noticed a significant increase of discontinued/obsolete discharge lighting stuff piled on the clearance/closeout shelves at my local electrical supply warehouses. It seems with the almost constant influx of new LED products rolling in they cannot keep both "old" and new products in inventory, it would be just far too much. That's the reason ive been posting lots of NOS gear and lamps lately because the distributors are cleaning shop and apparently uncovering stuff they've had for decades. One shop here has literally a mountain of NOS magnetic fluorescent ballasts both T12 and T8 of various wattages. Apparently high wattage probe start isn't selling either as both places I frequent are selling a bunch of M48 1500w ballasts less than 1/3 original price.

This "out with the old, in with the new" activity is great news for us though. I highly recommend any of you to stop in your local Graybar Electric, Hein Electric or Crescent Electric and have a look at the clearance area. Nearly every location ive been to recently has different stuff

@BlueHalide:
Sounds like some good finds could be had there.
Have no idea if such places exist near me.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...
