Hi,

I am not new to the forum, but I don' t remember my old email and nickname.
Bere Is my question.

I bought an GU81M in pristine condition for 35usd but It appears ti have an helicoidal junction in the middle of the glass evelope.
I have made a photo with a light perpendicular to the tube to show the imperfection, also the two parts are not at the same level.

The seller gave me a refound for other reasons, but I'd like to know of it's normal or not.

Thank you all

If it will be needed, I can offer ceramic sockets for GU81M. 2pcs, used, but in very good clear state, with complete set of metal bracing around the ceramic base. I was looking for these sockets very long time, since had 6pcs of GU81M and planned project. But it seems not realistic for me now. Expensive and not enough time.

Hi,

How much do you charge for a piece and two pieces?
