One of our graduates uses your Table Top Temperer. She came up with a very good question about replacement light bulbs. Since companies that make light bulbs in the US are tasked by the gov to phase out incandescent bulbs, what substitute bulb do you recommend she use to replace her current incandescent bulb?
Thanks to David Cole at ACMC for the quick response and asked him to keep me posted on any developments:
Thanks for your email. The light bulb issue is something we’re working on resolving, but haven’t instituted a permanent solution yet. My understanding of the government directive is that companies have to phase out standard incandescent bulbs, but specialty bulbs (halogens, rough service incandescent, etc.) are still allowed to be manufactured. We’re still testing halogen bulbs for use in the machine and are also investigating using a screw-in type of ceramic heater. For now though, I would say that your former student should try and stock up on incandescent 100W frosted light bulbs as replacements. Hopefully, we’ll have a more permanent solution in the near future.
