Maybe this isn't the best forum for this question, but I recently acquired a very old small carbon arc light, and am looking for replacement carbon arcs for it so I can try it out. Anyone know a good place to source these?

Thanks
Ben

I recommend giving Larry Parker a call at Mole Richardson, he is enormously knowledgeable help when it comes to these and would probably be happy to show you the ropes at their warehouse. If you are in LA, that is.

Thanks Kenny. I'll swing by Mole and see if Larry has a few minutes.
