Holophane 4215 Glass Refractor « on: January 15, 2021, 12:27:06 PM » Author: HPS_250
Looking for only one of these, preferably NOS or at least in good used condition. I believe they fit AEL 115s and GE M-250R2s. In case I ever get one of these, I’d like to find a spare refractor.

Thanks!

eBay link


Shipping is $20 on top of that.  :o Thanks for the link, but unfortunately this one is too expensive for me.

Yeah you're probably better off finding a whole light for that kind of money if you have the room.

There's also a GE plastic drop lens and a NOS 100w HPS Cooper OVZ with a Holophane 4215 glass that might be worth it depending on shipping.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/202998071390 $24.99 O.B.O. This has been listed for over 6 months so it might be worthwhile to make an offer . I'd try $20 .

It's a good price for one but I think that's a refractor for a AE 125, maybe the most recent GE M400 and M400A too as they seem to be very similar to the AE 125.

Don't remember the Holophane part number for this, but it's made for an ITT/American-Electric Series 25.

There was a good deal on some 4215's a while back, and an exhaustive search of eBay comes up negative...looks like someone bought them.

There were two for sale for $20 with $20 shipping but someone bought them about a week ago.

Holophane 4215 refractors are quite common so one will probably come up on eBay again.

Yep, that's the sale I was thinking of.

More 4215's are now on eBay. I posted a link in the web-finds.
