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. I need ones with red or green lenses. I'm interested in any quantity.

They also made them with amber lenses, but I already have a set of those.

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. Green is the preferable color that I need.

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.

Looks pretty close. I'll buy them see if they'll work! Thanks for the reply!
