I was under the impression that it was only the higher wattage bulbs & those old lamps weren't made for much above a 60. Don't know if any at all will ever be made in the U.S. but they can still make & sell them. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/201 ... -bulb-ban/

The object was and is to start with the 100 Watt bulbs and then ban all incandescent bulbs.

I guess the thing to do is stock up unless there is a exception for historical purposes, a lot of historical sites use those bulbs & they aren't cheap. Just like being able to drive old cars without seatbelts.

well it isn't like their is no replacement option. sure, cfl's and led's have some teething issues, but soon will put out better light, safer and cheaper than out dated red hot incandescent s. and a good thing too for everyone, except maybe the old goats who are stuck in the 60's.

I guess stupid drones just do what the're told because as a mindless, drooling idiots, they can't make their own decisions.

You are correct in what you say but it overlooks certain properties that the old bulbs have. One is full light output as soon as it is turned on, also the quality or certain properties of that light, To follow your reasoning the acquisition of any antique anything would be stupid because the modern is better. In your own line I would much rather have one of the old Honeywell stack controls with mercury switch in preference to the modern control. William considers the antique stove superior also, and with good reason. The cell phone I carry is far inferior to the newest and greatest but it has one property that the new phones can not match. It is compact and easy to carry. Though I use the new bulbs to save electricity and for their longevity I would not criticise anyone for preferring the old for properties the new lacks.

William, I also have some older lamps that just don't seem right with a CFL screwed in. Where do you source the antique bulbs?

Wal-Mart had a big display of 90watt incandescents, it was only the 100 watt bulbs & higher that were on the no-no list.

More than what a airedale bulb has to do here unless it's a 100 dalmatian or better, bulbs are sealed on the bottoms, if the dog was put in as a pup there was plenty of room. :idea:
