Uh, no Katie. The correct term is actually: "purchased."
I'm taking one for the team here and trying out these old school G.E. #5 flash bulbs. I won them on ebay today. The box contains 12 and with shipping came to $15.00. It's going to be a sad day if my screen gets ruined but I couldn't find anyone who had actually done this test yet. I know it might not seem to make a lot of sense to try some old bulbs that are probably harder to come by than the Riso bulbs. I was thinking that G.E. might find a way to resurrect these from the dead if there is enough interest. New petition anyone? I'll let everyone know how it goes as soon as I try them.
I apologize if I ever "give away" anyone's Gocco secrets. I really think the more information we have to work with, the better the chance that a non-Riso supplier will come along.
For an update on how these worked, see this post.
