I need to replace some of the lamps on my PDP-8/E front panel. The minimum order quantity is 100 and that costs $90 plus shipping.

I will be selling what ever I can't use at my cost plus shipping. If you are interested in any of these please let me know as my email address. I was told that delivery is approximately 10 week after I place the order.

My email is bitwiz@12bitsbest.com.

I was able to find a suitable lamp for $0.60 each in quantaties of 10 or more. I purchased 100. I have about 50 I can sell, at cost plus shipping. Please contact me directly if you are interested.

One person already contacted me but I lost the return email.

What I found is an Advanced Micro Lite AML 7367 which is the same as the JKL-7367.

I bought them from Specialty Bulb Co, Inc in New York (www.bulbspecialists.com)

The bulbs came from Advanced Micro Lites in IL. (https://www.advmicrolites.com/incandescent/)

I found that new bulbs have smaller diameter leads than the originals. I had to bend the leads to get them to fit tightly in the sockets.

I did not find that problem with these bulbs but I might just not have noticed.

I will agree that they don't fit quite as tightly at the PL10160
