we find the right one.

LEDs. I have some nice old Russian ones, red and green, that look very
much like TO-18 packages but aren't quite the same size. They look
great. I'm looking for the "right" project for a bunch of those.

- Alright, I have removed one GE SSL-22 from my Intellec's front panel. Here's an album with pictures of the LED in comparison to other (seemingly more common) LED varieties: http://imgur.com/a/PDLxsBut in a nutshell, the LED measures 0.24" tall, compared to 0.34" for a "standard" 5mm LED commonly found today. It's red plastic with thin stamped metal leads. This particular LED is completely open. The series resistor on the front panel board measures 240 ohms as expected. All other LEDs have a voltage drop of 1.5V or so measured with my DMM with power off (using the diode setting on the multimeter) and 2.5V or so with power on.Kyle
