I'm looking for indicator lights (the sockets/housing, not bulbs).

The ones I need are dim-able types, that have "DIM -> BRIGHT" written on the front. When you turn the front, it should increase or decrease brightness, via a little shutter, which looks like a radioactive sign. In the very center is a tiny hole, so when the shutter is closed, a small pinpoint of light can still come through. I need ones with amber, red or green lenses. I'm interested in any quantity.

On one that I already have, on the side of the front lens, in very faint stamp, is "C-42B-3593 2" The last number, in this case a 2, is the color code. 2 is amber, 3 is green, and I think, but I'm not sure, 1 is red. Any colors are helpful.

I'd like to have the type with the metal socket mounts, as shown in the image, but I'd consider others. I'm trying to match the couple that I already have.

If you think that you have any, send me a private message. I will respond as soon as I see it.

Thank you for your time,

I've seen several varieties of these and also at least two different bulb sizes. We really need a photo and information on which bulb type. Do you want a push-to-test function included?

DIALIGHT made every one I've seen in Avionics - they are still around. Fair Radio, eBay and Surplus Sales are all bound to have them. Most use a 327, 328, or 387 bulb, all the same size, just differing in intensity and bulb voltage.

Updated original post with images. As for bulb size, a #47 fits properly.

Bump. Still looking for green lens ones, and a few red ones.

Bump. Still looking for any more available. The panel needs loads of all colors.

Thank you for the response.

I really need one with a metal face, as shown. The rear housing can be bakelite, but I need to match the outer appearance.

I might know some people who'd be interested in what you have, though.

Thank you!

OK. They are available to anyone that can use them.
