I would like to find a source for some small (apx 3/8 diameter) 24 volt colored indicator lights that I can mount and use for warning/power on,etc. A choice of red, green color would be great. I know Radio Shack sells these in 12 volt.
Anyone have a source?  Thanks

I recently purchased several 24 volt bulbs from an outfit in Atlanta. Their inventory was huge. I would compare other vendors as I went along, but if memory serves me they had the best prices on all the bulbs. In some cases, I had to purchase 10 bulbs but again the prices were good enough that it did kill me and I know I will always use them.


They had some of the best prices I could find. The shipping was excellent and they arrived as ordered.

Good luck!

You should take a look at   T1-3/4 style  instrumentation lampholders from the electronics industry that take #327 lamps.  These lamps are rated at 28 volts and are cheap and tough.  billions of them were used by the military and electronics industries until LED's were invented. There's even a box of 327's on ebay for another 10 hours for a buck
    Item number: 4640482195

Mouser has T1-3/4 lampholders, part number 606-5131-038 fpr about $5 each.  Then lenses are available in any color, 606-131A-303 (a,r,g,y) for clear lenses and
606-131a-304 and 404 for other variations on the lenses.  these holders have pins that will require soldering.

For non-relampable plastic lamps that have wires and just push into a hole, Mouser has indicator lamps made by CHicago Miniature for about $3 each.  the part number for 24 volt ones is 607-1090A(1)-28V for red, change the (1) to 3 or amber and 5 for green.  These are domed lenses; for flat lenses change the A to a C. These all sitck in a 1/2" hole
