It is the more probable.I did the same with the dials bulbs of an Saba 455 wk.Due the diameter of the original bulbe light are greater the working bulb I have disponible,so,I soldered to the new bulb the metal extremity of the old one...

I think the previous owner probably couldn't find the original lamp and tried to make one himself?

And do not would to change the original dial system?

So,it make a "invention" workable?

What is your opinion about?
