Wow what a circus to try and find a replacement Mini Indicator Lamp - T3.25 Bulb - 2.5 Volt - 0.25Amp. - Miniature Screw (E10) Base for my vintage Sony 1130 Integrated Amplifier.
Would anyone has a source in Canada where I don't have to pay 25 for shipping?
Any help would be appreciated.

Ebay: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/NEW-PKG-2-Pilot-Light-Bulb-41-screw-on-base-2-5V-T-3-1-4-500mA-/391477242165?hash=item5b25dca935:g:JRQAAOSwG-1W1e~q
Other than that, perhaps activetech or something in Calgary has them...for sure, on something like that, you're going to get nailed on shipping unless someone on CAM has one to send...
http://www.a1parts.ca/lamps/index.htm has them but it'll be ~$15 shipping.

Some larger custom lighting retail stores stock small bulbs(lamps) for industry.
Also check the local electric wholesalers.Might have a minimum though.
That lamp should have a #.

Really what I would try is going old-school, calling around to all the electronics shops in Calgary, Lethbridge, Edmonton, Red Deer, or wherever else that is within earshot of cowtown...that'd minimize your shipping costs and I wouldn't doubt that someone in Calgary actually has some...

A shout out to everyone for the tips, I called around, spoke to the fellas that do tech work for me in Edmonton, Calgary, etc and failed measurably.
I ended up buying some from https://newoldsounds.com, reasonable shipping costs, etc
Thanks again.
