@Danny, Not that I have any BC fittings but they can be used also for homemade lamp adaptor, I used CFL ballast and BC cap in my 2D adaptor

Thanks for the comments

Ill avoid these halogen capsule GLS bulbs from now on and tbh I think halogen GLS candle can possibly start a fire due to its higher heat level.

Shows what rubbish we are being offered in the lighting world

Btw I still keep these 5 in separate spare Polaroid boxes

I will give LEDisease a taste of my shoe

different cap - different factories, ages, brand and design

Do Chinese factories make the BC caps at the design which are on the other 3 of the bulbs I'm wondering if its a good technique to look at the base design to see if its Chinese made

no, I don't think so, I have some British made GEC and Thorn/Thorn EMI and France made osram lamps and my osram made German 3BC MBF has the same step in the BC cap as the candle lamps with the same and similar caps to the polaroid and the 2 to the right

May be of interest, in England, when we made lamps the main makers bought their caps from a company partly owned by GEC and I think Philips, I think it was called Lamp Caps Ltd in Sheffield but my memory is a bit sketchy maybe James can give more info. Very old lamps from far east and ones marked Foreign often if you looked at the base where the 2 solder contacts are the vitrite would have concentric rings.

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.

Yes those modern lamps from China not very good, in the good old days lamps lasted a good year on normal use, but if needed long life but did not mind less light use a RS bulb they just went on and on.Modern RS bulbs are just a joke normally a single coil job, not a proper RS filament.

There's no point keeping EOL lamps unless they are rare ir special to you (like your first lamp) especially if you have working ones in the collection, I threw out that Philips SON-E 250w as it was completely dead, not even a cycler or even a glimmer out of the lamp, so in the FL tubes bin it went.

Agreed, only exceptionally rare lamps are worth keeping at EOL. I have some old mercury lamps (tubular ones) they make nice ornaments even when they don't work. EOL tubes are fun to murder on HPS gear until the tube leaks!
