Default Festoon Bulbs Needed

I'm looking for the old Festoon Bulbs for a Bruel & Kjaer unit.

They are the bulbs that look like fuses.
I need 2, they are wired inseries. Probably need sparese spares.
They are 7V .25A. approx 7-8mm diameter and approx 30mm long

Whom ever last serviced it use 6.8V and that just wasn't enough.
I'm measuring 13.8V.

I could try automotive bulbs at 12V but worried they won't be
bright enough most are too large in circumference 8.5mm is too large.

cheers,

Sync

I believe I have a bag of them in 8v for exactly that application, panel lights. If you are interested, send me a PM.

Same exact dimensions as a common 1-1/4 inch fuse, right?

Hi Ripcord, the glass diameter is too large on those I think.
The ends look correct. They might work but I think they
would rub.

Ray, I've considering the LEDs I'd like the incandescents first.

Enzo PM sent.

Cheers,

Sync

Got it, the lamps I have are the thinner ones that look EXACTLY like a plain glass fuse.
