Gotta' 1966 Williams Hot Line machine.
I just installed my last #455 blinking bulb and understand from Pinball Life that they're no long manufactured. Really? Ugh... Terry from PbL tells me there are some "new old stock" (NOS) sources out there, but they don't have them.
So, I'm curious how the pinside community has dealt with this dilemma. What have y'all done?
The EE in me has noticed that the bulbs I've used in the past burn out relatively quick - I guess from all of the on/off cycles of it blinking. I wonder if one existed, whether an LED version would have longer life. Are there any and if so, has anyone tried them?
No more 455s... Ugh... The world is so coming to an end!
Thanks for any thoughts.
