Maybe it's a fourth generation model...those came out in 1979 and had an optional fat lens.
I wonder what one of those looks like...  Cheesy

A flat glass lens? From the 70s? Is there a pic of it somewhere here?

I think it's great that we share a love of collecting. Smiley

Though we do tend to egg each other on to buy lamps now...  Undecided

Last night, I dreamt that I was walking under series of high power of these high tension wires.  Some of these wires are really low and thick cable.  As I walked under one of the high power tension, one of the heavy cable laid on my back trapped with the weight of the cable.  I could feel the pulsating hum of the live cable.  I tried to call out for help and I see few people looking at me reluctant to approach to live cable lying on me.

I woke up finding myself in a same position that I was lying down in my dream Shocked

I wish Philips made the European SL design over here. I would like one but there is really no way to operate them on 120v that I know of.
If you get any, you could always run them from a step-up transformer, I use either a step-down transformer (for the big lamps) or a Variac to run my 120V lamps. I'm fairly sure I've seen 120V versions of the Prismatics though, but I can't be certain.

None of the ones we've got have ever refused to strike, including original Mk.1 Philips SL Prismatics.

Replacement components are luckily easily obtainable though! Just pop it open and replace the electrolytic caps and they should run like new.

We have one machine that still has Windoze 7 on it, but I don't see any need to change from that as it is only really used for playing Sim City 4, and I haven't done that in ages.

The only downside of collecting self ballasted cfl is that the electronics ages even if you don't use it.
