Walmart might have clear C9 Christmas lights out now.

Sorry not bayonet. I've not seen one before.

I see several on E pay - 7 watt 130 bayonet bulb search.
Also used on some over the range microwaves for the dim (night light) bulb.
Local electric supply store or appliance dealer might keep in stock.

You're looking for 6S6DC-120V (or 145V if you never want to replace them). There are LED replacements too, but I don't know how evenly they would light (but would be much less heat). I would think I'd find them in Lowes; probably not at Wal-Mart.

Years ago I was looking for one to replace a Zenith dial light, ended up finding one at a sewing shop, turns out they are used on sewing machines.

Every Sears vac I've seen uses a 15W, too high wattage & heat.

The S6 lamps have dual contacts came in several wattages.

Common on ebay BUT make sure they are bayonet, also available in candelabra base.

Mc master Carr has them in all voltages (6S6). I use the LED version when I can. I have some old commercial switch gear that uses them.The LED’s last a lot longer and give good brightness. I even use the LED’S when replaying my home Night lights.

I refurbished a white, plastic CGE Model C600 a few years ago... and was surprised by the huge dial lamp! It had a good lamp, but much too bright for me! I think I wired in a series resistor to make it more amenable, but I no longer have the radio to check.
Cheers,
Roger
EDIT
PS. The smart move would be to use a series capacitor so as to dissipate no power (heat.) I don't recall doing this... might have!

I contacted a sewing machine place today he had 15w at 115v but to hot to fit in, but he had socket for screw in bulbs so I think I will go that way.

Would a diode tame the 15w bulb down a little?

Also a cap should work.

Even small incandescent bulbs seem to be going the way of the drugstore tube tester. Vendors that had a good selection even pretty recently seem not to have many for sale these days.

Better get 'em while you still can.
