    Really wanted to like LEDs and have bought and tried quite a few in a number
    of my pins. Use them more in newer pins but also in pop bumpers of older
    pins (including EMs) because 47's and 44's fail fast due to the shock and vibration.
    LEDs look horrible behind BG's.

    95% of bulbs in my pjns are incandescents.

    Just recovered some 555 lamps from a Banzai Run display board. Profit!

    I use 1847 bulbs in high vibration areas. This # is the same as 47 bulbs, but has a heavy duty filament.

    That's awesome! I was just wondering if there was a "rough service" equivalent for these lamps. Does/did GE make them or do we need to rely on foreign sources? GEs are much more reliable in general.

    Also are the 159s equivalent to this for 555s? I could use those in Sega games. They are brighter and really chew through 555s.

    The vintage GE 1847 bulbs are the best if you can find them

    Has anyone compared 44s to 47s under inserts? I imagine for the heat savings the brightness isn't far off.

    Well this guy is heavy duty and bright!

    At 750w in a single bulb it's incandescent porn!!
