Hilliard owners in the US, have you stocked up on your 100w light bulbs yet?

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..

Thanks for sharing, I haven't been able to find 100 watt bulbs for some time now and was wondering about why. I've been using the 95w but even those are getting hard to find.

I have an ACMC which also requires such bulbs.  Last time one went out the only thing close I could find was 95w which works but I don't know if those will become extinct as well.
