WTB brass GE light bulb socket

Post by Dropacent » Tue Feb 16, 2021 6:04 pm

I need one just like this. Marked “ GE Co USA 75 w 125 v “. Takes auto size bulbs. Will buy one or more. If you have something very similar , vintage, I would buy 2 or 4. Also consider something old , similar but sized for candelabra bulbs. Tmorsher@icloud.com to reach me. Thanks!

Two more just like these would be well rewarded. I can make a base to work.

I n searching it appears that the bulb is type B22 - and most references relate to a British or English style socket. So here is an option allows the use of the B22 into a conversion socket so regular socket can be used. All depends on what you goal is. Unfortunately stock in the USA is limited and shipment may be form another country so eyes open

It’s is not. It’s the same bulb used in millions of old cars including model T ford. Why throw confusion in my WTB thread?

Thanks for the lead, Dan. Great website, I have messages off to them hoping they have some old stuff that will work. Bookmarked it, too.
