Wanted: HPM 388 Sockets « on: March 31, 2022, 07:40:54 PM » Author: 108CAM
I'm trying to find some HPM 388 fluorescent lampholders for one of my AJF Zodiacs as the originals had disintegrated. I had a look online and could only find catalogue references without a "Buy Now" option. Someone was able to get the lampholders for their Zodiac but I can't find anything online.
Tombstone style lampholders won't work and the button sockets I have are too thick.

Fluro starter chimes combined with a 50hz ballast hum and blinking tubes is music to my ears.

I found some HPM 380 tombstones that seem to be closest match to the 388. At least according to the data sheet.

Those won't work due to how the sockets are mounted.

It's the 382 you want, not the 388.

Yes I know about the typo. I found myself some 382's a while back and know where to buy more if needed.
