    Mine have a round flouresent bulb. The bulbs are a bit hard to find when you need one.
    I bought my first one and then got the exact same one at a thrift store for $10, now I have two.

    Halogen seems like it would take more skill than I have to use, concerned I wouldn't figure out the heat issue.

    Not that I will but if I was going to get another on I would get a LED one.

    Thank you, Lauri. That's very useful to hear that you wear some supplemental lenses, too. I was wondering how those eggs got 'as big as hot dogs'. I think that the lamp might also come in handy for my wife when she needs to do some close work with her knitting needles, so I guess I will just need to decide on halogen vs. LED. LED's a bit more spendy than the halogen, and I have to decide if the investment's worth it for a lamp that's not going to be on for very long or very frequently. I wonder if halogen bulbs will stop being made during the rest of my lifetime!

    Did some grafting after work today. The more I use this little gizmo the more I like it.
    I only did a few grafts, 12 in two separate starter/finishers. it took me longer to set up than the grafting.

    I was wondering if you are still happy with your grafting gadget? I am thinking of buying a similar device... Would you recommend it or do something totally different?

    Thanks for your help.

    Chris.
