My updated list:

A linear SLI/H sodium lamp
        Update 23/12/19 Finally found one of these  Grin

A 10W and a 180W SOX lamp     Update 23/12/19 A 180W one is on its way Grin

A pearl glass 80W or 125W mercury vapour lamp

A beehive neon lamp

A 3-way incandescent lamp (they never took off in the UK)

A 5ft 80W BC-cap fluorescent tube


And probably a few more, but that's all I can currently think of  Cool

I think you mean B22d-3, there is a subtle difference between that and 3BC, which can catch out the unwary. There are usually plenty available on UK eBay, but if you get stuck I may be able to find a spare 80W one somewhere.

Best of luck with the MA lamps though, it took me 40+ years to find mine, and I only managed it with the help of another collector who pointed me in the direction of someone on eBay who had one listed under "filament lamps" for some obscure reason  LOL

Sox35 - I've had a look and nothing comes up, probably should've expected that for a 1am eBay search Cheesy. I don't think I'll be finding a MA lamp anytime but one can dream though.

Found these three. Two are saying they don't post outside of the UK but I have bought from two of the sellers here and I think they might if you ask.
