  I made a similar enquiry to HistoNet about 2 years ago
  and got 3 spot-on answers in less than 24 hours. The
  SCI.MICROSCOPY newsgroup came up with nothing. Newsgroups
  aren't much use any more, becaues of excessive spamming.

  Good luck! You may get asked to specify a few more
  details, because AO have made more than one model of
  microscope. If you've got the old bulb, any numbers etc
  on its metal base will be henormously elpful.

  A firm called Micro Lites (Scarborough, Ontario) supplies every
  bulb for everything, in 24 hours. Their slim, simple, free, printed
  illustrated catalogue shows up the Internet as a retarded dinosaur!

  No, I'm not a MicroLites shareholder - just a customer glad to have
  got his bulb the next day on 2 occasions.
