    Well the 5000 MX actually made some sparks today.

    I am not sure when it was last used but everything is working plus a new regulator,20 litre bottle of SGS Gas and fired up first time.

    One problem I have which does not stop the machine working is, I need to source a 28 Volt lamp to show power is on.

    I tried Migatronic but they do not have spares for machines of this age.

    Any help greatly appreciated

    I have some lo volt lamps that fit in a 22mm hole if you need one. I think they are 24v but they'll be fine on 28 I'm sure.

    I do the opposite :D a lot of our plant has 24V panel lamps that are on 24/7 (power on, auto mode etc.) and I've found they fail after a few weeks or months so I tend to fit 28 or 30V lamps which seem to last forever.

    Thanks guys.
    I eventually tracked one down at Farnells.
    The original was a non lampable item, so you had to buy the complete assembly.
    Anyway all sorted now I have no excuse not to practice, practice, practice

    Having checked them out they are actually 18-24v so probably would have been very short-lived

    Ah, that's good to hear.
