Arcing rectifier -- seeking sage advice

I just purchased a National Union NX-280 globe as a replacement... Yes, partly because I love the look of globes :geek:.

A huge and deserved 'thank you' to everyone in this thread -- what a help it was to have this guidance and knowledge in diagnosing and understanding something new to me.

Cheers all!
