One of these hung over a welder's bench at an Electrolytic Zinc refinery near me, I just never had the chance to grab it. It would be long gone now...It re-enforces my philosophy that you only ever get one "shot" at a rare lamp in a single lifetime!
I remember it clearly because it looks superficially like the Philips "Altrilux" filament lamp.

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

Fee, Fye, Fow, Fum, A dead man's eye and a parrot's BUM!
