I have one of these. I have had it for at least 40 years, so I assume there aren't many about now!

Very unusual almost neckless bulb. I think mine has been hammered to E.O.L.

Nice to see the packet!

These are getting quite hard to find...at least the good ones that are worth collecting.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

At the ReStore, I saw 5 GTE era 250w Metalarcs, 2 or 3 GTE era 1000w Metalarcs, and others. I can get the 250w lamps, but can't get the 1000w lamps because I'm running out of space for now (have a small house).

What about up in the roof....1Kw lamps don't weigh much. Or "skitch" another collector onto them... I know "Silverliner" Dave is only about 80Km away!

That's a great idea...they are starting to get rare now, so us collectors have to work together to prevent the "plonkers" getting them and using them.


I have three BT-56's here...bloody big balloons...my house is small too, but these's nobody to stop me stuffing them up in the roof! In reality they will be going to the shipping container soon!
