    Those HSM's should take a cue from the folks at a Livermore, California fire station ...put one in that'll last 116 years of continuous use.

We should give the light bulb a choice whether it actually wants to be a light bulb or not. Who knows, some light bulbs might be born as different appliances, stuck in a light bulb form. Who are we to force a life of illumination on a bulb, that actually identifies as microwave, or refrigerator.
    I realize the light bulb may or may not exert a life force, or soul. The life force in the bulb is actually capable of being all those things, it's just in this particular incarnation it has been given the form of a light bulb. It is beholden upon the bulb to live its life in such a manner so it can be reborn as a higher life form like a microwave or refrigerator. If it lives a poor life, it may come back as a CFL in an Easy-Bake oven.

    I can suggest bulbs back to 1819, but again, too much spec drift.

    Hmmm... I suspect some sort of scam. They're advertising bulbs back as far as 1156, when you could only get electricity by rubbing amber on cats' fur.

    This thread is just like an Amazon product question thread.

    Funny you should ask. I am building an 1895 dynamo and need 1895 bulbs to match it. The originals were 12 volt, 5 candle power. Modern bulbs are designed to work on watts or lumens and obviously won't work correctly on the 1895 electricity. I haven't yet found any so I may have to make my own.

    Is it a Metric E26 threaded bulb or 1 1/64" imperial bulb?

    This entire thing is on the wrong forum, it belongs on the PM.
