Rated 1 out of 5 by Chrissy925 Not what I wanted
Sadly this item was unsuitable. I ordered this item on the internet (to collect in store) to replace the bulb in a light magnifier that I purchased from Hobbycraft a couple of years ago. It now seems that replacements are only available in the USA (which incur very expensive postal costs). I'd be grateful if someone could get back to me with a remedy for this problem. It seems crazy to sell items such as light magnifiers without holding a stock of suitable replacement bulbs: to not do so virtually renders the item as disposable!
I require a 113mm diameter 4 pin tube - like this but bigger. It would have been helpful if the physical measurement had been included in the sales details too. I now have to make a 15 mile round trip to return this item.
I look forward to hearing from someone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babsy It's what it says it is a light bulb
Had previously bought a hobby lamp from here the light bulb in it lasted about 18 months in daily use .by unscrewing lamp it was easy to change over and plug in.works a treat my only concern is when my last one was at its end of life it became very hot in one area and started to melt the plastic around it , so don't leave it unattended .
I do think its a bit pricey for what it is and it's annoying that you can't get it in store as it's not something that you can plan to buy in advance, even with next day delivery which I paid over £5 for it still took 3 days as ordered on Friday am but didn't get until the Monday pm,
