    Default Countdown to the ban on incandescent

    Make sure if you use incandescent bulbs in your honey warmers to stock up while you can today. They are banned tomorrow.

    I personally have bought quite a few to stock up. You might be able to eBay them also in the future.

    Who is banning them? I haven't heard anything like that around here.

    I just checked. 40 & 60 watt phaseout starts tomorrow. 75 & 100 started last year. Funny, I just bought some 100 watt incandescents.

    Manufacture ceases today, if it's still going on. Stock will be sold until it's gone.

    I've not bought incandescent bulbs for a long time now, and halogen bulbs (which are almost as hot as incandescents will still be available.

    We will have to find some low wattage heaters instead, like a heating pad.

    When I went to the store a couple weeks ago to get some, they wanted about 8 bucks for a package of two, so I figured something was up. No, I didn't buy them at that price.

    What world do you guys live in? this controversy has been boiling for years. Fortunately I believe this does not effect rough service bulbs which of course are more expensive, however the authorities will soon find some other product to play similar games with.

    Some stores I've been in already don't carry them anymore, even HD only had a very small stock of a couple different wattages, and they didn't even have anything over 60 watts.

    Johno is correct. "Rough Service" incandescents are still legal. I don't know the whole story, but I believe it took some redesigning and special permission from the Dept. of Energy. They sell them here and at one other site I believe.

    You can buy them unitl the stores run out. HD has warehouses of them so it will be another few weeks and they will become scarce. They cannot be made in the USA after tomorrow. 40,60,75 and 100. Spots are still ok but, they take up to much room. I picked up 128 of them so I wont run out for a few years. I use 3 in my warming refer.

    I have 6 cases of 60 watt ceiling recesed (can) lightbulbs stashed in the basement. That should get me through a few years until LED bulbs drop slightly less in price.

    In the longer nights of fall-winter-spring, when we use our lights the most, our incandescent bulbs are 100% efficient because we need both heat and light.

    I wonder why none of the equipment companies have come up w/ a Hot Box Honey Liquifier for Buckets? Would a Hair Dryer work?
