Honestly, this is the first lighting item I've bought that was screwed up in shipping ! I've seen & heard alot of horror stories here about this on LG ! If it was a clear one I'd be tempted to drive there and get it myself (the seller is about 5-6 hrs from me in north-west Indiana. BTW they still have 4 more !!

I’m just curious now that I have studied this ,a little more Did they test this bulb before shipping, ? This may just be a premature stress crack .
That girder frame setup looks like it would offer lots of protection for the ark tube ,

Anyway, Just curious ,

I doubt it, the seller is a construction co. i'd guess it just got banged the right way in transit by the USPS (United States Parcel Smashers!)

Whoops , I see what happened, The exhaust section of the ark tube appears to be in a slight bind on the girder so rough handling in shipping would cause this,

Dang !!!

It's cracked clean through with a piece of arc-tube floating around inside the bulb !

this is why you should double box
the lamp and junk plastic bags works the best
even toilet paper as packing material
then oack it into another box. also
very important mark it fragile glass

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

UPDATE: the replacement lamp arrived completely intact, the etch is Identical, so all information is the same as this one (except it WORKS!)

This has been dropped or the box hit by another heavy, fast moving object!

I agree, besides, the arc-tube support frame is SO LONG in these lamps that you'd think Ken-Rad (aka Westinghouse) would have had the sense to install the same support "springs" that are in the crown of the lamp on the structure in the neck of the lamp for extra stability ! Most of my other 700 & 1000 watt lamps have them.

I'd love to send BIG LAMPS to other collectors, but I feel most of them just simply would not make it for these very reasons...long arc frames that bend and flex quite easily....and not to mention the damn cost of it!

That's a big S.O.B.!! AND, it has the support "springs" in the neck for extra support which this Ken-Rad doesn't have! Kinda foolish, I think !

I suppose they packed them in such a manner that they felt the extra internal support wasn't warranted and they could accept a few lost in transit...hate to think how many snapped stems I've seen from transit of lamps where the stem is the only support and has to "wear" all inertial bending moments during knocks in transit.
