Those little pesky 7.5w 110V AC bulbs for Atari pinball cabinet heads, gun
games, and baseball games, are sometimes hard to find and when you do find
them they are about $2 to $2.50 each. You can convert the head to use the 4W
readily available 65c nightlight bulbs by purchasing a little AC outlet
adapter and then then plugging a right angle nightlight (usually comes with
a 4W bulb). This is a one time cost of about $3 per socket but after the
initial investment you can buy the 4W bulbs real cheap when they go out. If
you want to have more fun with the backbox, string a set of blinking white
Christmas lights in there. Plug them into one of the sockets with the
adapter already installed.
