Is anybody here familiar with the old GE Lumiline lamps with removable end caps? I'm looking for the end caps. They were made by Levitan, but are no longer made. Do any of you have any laying around your shop, or know of any source to buy them? I am working on a historic building , so a retrofit is not an option. Thanks,
Richard

Try http://users.ticnet.com/mikefirth/wishlist.htm#2 “Lumiline Ends”
http://www.gelighting.com/na/downloads/01_inc.pdf refers to the lamp as “T8 Disc”.
http://mailman.listserve.com/archives/collins/1999/msg02021.html mention of Phillips with “end caps are an integral part of the bulb.”

Nothing shows up at their site, but IIRC Wiremold used to have some accessories for tube-type incandescent lamps that were powered by a contact on each end.

Sparky806:
"Lumiline" mounting hardware was a "Wiremold" item in this area.
I'll see if I have any floating in the shop Thurs PM, or if I can hunt a part ##

Ya may try the wiremold site.

I have 4 sets of Wiremold 2127-DC Lumiline single receptacle (pairs) including the snap on lamp discs. I also have a small number of sockets only, which fit into a 2100 series Wiremold base. If you could find these on some old dusty shelf you would be set. You are welcome to these if they will do you any good.
