That looks like a standard 28 watt bulb, filament as opposed to a CFL.

So I can get a cooler, brighter bulb then? What exactly would I ask/look for? Sorry for being dumb but light bulbs aren't my area of expertise LOL.

I've always wanted a lamp with built in magnifying glass. Just couldn't ever find a decently priced one that was good quality as well. Guess I must start my hunt for the perfect magnifying lamp again. Great guide djinn.

MrHuk: Ask for a CFL, it's short for compact flouresant light. Pretty much the small white curled lights he has shown in the tut. They will be much cooler and brighter than what you currently have.

4th: http://www.staples.com/office/suppli...6mcmode%3Dtest I have one of those, clamp it to the arm of my chair. Edit: (the second lamp)

And it would be a 9w right, since that's the equivalent of 40w?

Yah they come in different flavors, the higher the watt of the CFL the higher the value of the bulb it replaces.

Thanks, I'll look into it Monday, hopefully the difference will be noticeable as this thing gets so hot it's crazy, you can't even touch the outside of the lamp.

Would be brighter and take longer to get hot if at all, some of them get hot after time some don't. No where near as hot as what you had or if it does it takes a long time to do so.

Yeah, you turn this thing on and 20 seconds later it's too hot to touch, leave it for an hour and you'll leave skin behind on the lamp shell.
