Re: [z_scale] Scale light bulbs
- Hi Steve,
Here is two good sources for micro miniature bulbs. I have used the 1.5v
micro bulbs and the 1.5v axial bulbs. They are fun to work with. If you
use a 9 v DC wall transformer you can power 10 bulbs in series (nominal
voltage of 15 volts). The lower voltage gives good brightness and greatly
extends the lifetime of the bulbs.
Miniatronics (see web site) has a super selection.
GRS Micro-liting (web site ?) makes an extensive line of circuits for
special lighting effects. I have their Hobo Campfire circuit.
