Love the bulb.
Or as we sometimes say, the bub.

Your local Lowes or home depot should have them. A couple brand names and 40-60 watt equivalent. 
Other shape envelopes as well. My prefeered bulb these days unless I want daylight bulbs.

Have you taken one apart to find out how they got the long/skinny filament to look like it is glowing? Led buried in a fiber optic length, maybe?
Oh, come on, with THIS crew, someone must have!

no dissection here at $ 10 each i use them  as a bulb. I am thinking long skinny leds  they doo throw of some heat  IIRC they use about 6 watts or 10% of an incandescent.

Those are the bulbs I put in my office lights because they looked nice in the kind of old fashiony fixtures.
They sure are a yellow light and I am still not sure if they are too yellow for me.  Makes the blue paint on the walls look green, even more so at night.

The warm yellow glow similar to a kerosene lamp. A feeling of nostalgia. Relaxing.

The only time I say "bub" is when I have a bad cold!  :ROFL:

I think I've got just the place for one of those Edison lights. But it won't be until I get set up.

I'm going to be a bad boy for the next several days.
T went out of town to help our dear friend go through her other hip replacement.

I'm tasked with eating T's frozen dinners that she prepared for me.

But gee...I don't get many chances for a chicken cheesesteak or a pizza from Peppermill.
And...I gotta stop off at grocery for some rocky road.

I'm fortunate that she does not travel much anymore. I would not survive my diet.  ;D

My excuse to her? Once in a while you have to eat garbage to appreciate the good food.

Yeah. Yeah. She doesn't buy it either.

I understand completely about eating garbage to appreciate the good stuff!  Staying at a hotel while at NAMES I had a bowl of Frosted Flakes for breakfast (pure vacation food.)  I thought my wife was going to loose her breakfast watching me eat them.  I did some twitching during the day but a small price to pay!

A little update. We're getting close.

I'm having trouble with photobucket tonight so the pics are attached below.

1st and 2nd shot is the kitchen with back splash installed but not grouted yet.
3rd and 4th shot is the floor in living and old dining room. Getting sanded. Part of the floor is new.
5th shot is the newly installed driveway!
6th shot is the driveway and the builder's outhouse.
I had to include that. An outhouse. Brings back many childhood memories.

T is out of town. By the time she returns the driveway should be 'cured'. Then I'm thinking I can pull the trigger on getting machines.

 :'( :'( Full of non-shop stuff. Once shelves are in closets and some of the rooms done then out it goes.

I do hope to get a lab bench in there this weekend. Just something...something...to make it a shop.

(The switch does help though.)

Is that an essential item I see in the kitchen ... a wine fridge?
