Affordable microscope bulb for Zeiss

#1 Post by FungusMan » Fri Aug 28, 2020 9:28 pm

I found an online shop in Europe (Switzerland) which sells home and ironmongery stuff, amongst which was an original bulb for Zeiss microscopes (25W / 6V) at around 20Eur. My previous searches on ebay were from US at 40-50Eur plus shipping plus taxes. I am not sure if Eu countries have to pay Vat from Switzerland... but I wanted to share this with you. They have bulbs for other Zeiss models.

Unfortunately this website is not letting me pay the order, some issue with the credit card... and I wonder if it is scam.

I found halogen bulbs 6V 25 or 30W from amazon.com from US but the delivery is a phenomenal 50-60USD for such a small item. Strangely enough, nothing found on ebay.co.uk. Hence I ask if there are online store who specialises on microscope bulbs: REPLACEMENT BULB FOR CARL ZEISS AXIOLAB HALOGEN, AXIOLAB A, AXIOTECH 25 25W 6V

Thanks

Do you have the Zeiss designation for it?

GUYS CAREFUL - ITVINAS ONLINE SHOPPING IS FRAUDULENT


Sorry for suggesting that shop but I found that I paid my ordered and not delivered. On further research, I found on a fraudulent website watcher that this shop is listed as possible fraud
and it seems I just gave them 50 Euros! I am applying for chargeback!

Yes and I can solder too, but the rating is 6V 25W while that store only sells 6V 20W Osram. Any other option please?

Just out of curiosity ... Does anyone understand why the Axiolab lamp is listed as 25W when the actual bulb illustrated is clearly marked 30W
