The support bracket looks unusual

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

It's designed to keep the arc tube isolated electrically from the outer envelope - see James's page on this lamp here.

It'll be all right in the end, and if it isn't all right, it isn't the end  Smiley

Nice

It is

It cost me a bit more than I really wanted to pay, but unfortunately these days SOX lamps are becoming harder to find and more expensive, so these really lovely ones (I think the Super SOX ones the best SOX lamps ever made) have to be saved
