The parts book lists them as NLS (No longer supplied), and I do not know of a supplier. You may find them either S/H or new old stock, shelved alongside the hen's teeth.

    Australian built ones may have used other locally made lights.
    I think John is correct with Sparto.

    A couple of places 'list' them but are out of stock.

    LR Service Newsletter from 1966 mentions them

    Thanks John and Colin. At least I know what I'm searching for.

    The knowledge collectively held by members on this forum never ceases to amaze me.

    Thanks again.

    Interesting read. Thank you. it takes me back a few years when I rebuilt my 2A SWB.

    For the lamps, you could try All Four X Four Spares of Kotara NSW 02 40414000. They were able to help me recently with clear lens.

    Seemed to go out of their way to do so as well.

    Worth a try.

    Certainly not 40 squid (AUD 76) each though.

    When you have reversed into something hard & smashed one you will wonder why you had spent that much on them.
