Default No.2 GPO Wedge bulbs 24/28v

I am after a minimum of four, but preferably 10 of these or a link to a source, for a project.

I've tried the E-bay source with no luck.

Thanks

Nick

Try here:

He is in the USA and so prices are in USD, but has lots of bulbs.

Thanks guys, I'll see if bobsterkent can find any floor sweepings at work, but I suspect they will be 50v.
If not it appears R.S. do stock them then, what they call a T6.8 is what used to be a T2, they seem to use the tube diameter at the code.

Well I had a look in the far off rooms that haven't been touched in years, but I didn't come up with any, mind you I found plenty of IDF blocks brand new still in boxes....

I can vaguely remember wiring Christmas tree blocks in a past life. One loose turn, then one and a half (or was it two and a half) at the end, break the wire tail off and solder. Repeat ad nauseam.

To get to the point, I can supply two 24V. I have some others, but only two 24V. They're a bit shop soiled, but NOS.

Hi Nick, I have some bulbs like that, the ones I have are marked No2 24v and are approx. 43mm overall length. I only have five but if that's what you are looking for then you are welcome to them. Norman
