As of Sunday Jan. 1, 2012 retailers can only sell their remaining inventory of 100w incondecent lightbulbs. This is to make way for the new effecient bulbs. That could be a problem for us Hilliard melter owners because the Little Dipper and the mid-range unit are heated by these 100w bulbs. There is an article in the online version of the USAToday talking about this and there does not seem to be a need to run out and grab all you can today. However, it is coming and I wanted you to be aware of it. I have to believe the boys at Hilliards are working on an alternative and will have something in the near future.
As an owner of two Hilliards I thought I should put it out there in case you missed it..
