Goodness I just thought of something: last week I went to the store to buy light bulbs for chandeliers and realized that there were NO incandescent lightbulbs for sale - for any application!

Just now reading these posts I realized that when the light bulbs go out on my ACMC I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO USE MY TEMPERER because these new horrible twisty new light bulbs do not put out enough heat. Am I correct?

Does anyone have an answer to this problem before I contact ACMC?

I just read that the government has overturned the ban on incandescent light bulbs, so you should be able to still buy the 100W incandescent in retail stores. Check out this website with a news article:

Also, ACMC told me that if you cannot find a 100W incandescent bulb, you can try a 90W halogen, a 100W rough service bulb (has a thicker filament) or there is a screw in heating element you can find at Grainger, but it is much more expensive.

I have been stocking up as many bulbs as I can find just in case.
