Work light question

Can you get replacement bulbs for these? Properly a silly question but I don`t know and I`d like to find out before I grab it.

Does the need justify the want ? Or does the want suffice?

yup @$5 for the bulbs last time I bought one. Keep your hands off it and it'll last longer too.
Started with nothing and still have most of it left.

Thats a keeper, pick up replacement bulbs where you buy tools too!

I prefer the lower wattage once, they dont get near as hot.

Yup don't touch the glass with your hands if you want the bulb to last longer than 5 minutes.

Remember the general rule of thumb. If they sound hot, they aren't.

As an add on to this, i have one of those but broke the glass.  I can't seem to find a replacement, most places just say I should "junk the unit and buy a new one."  Anybody got any ideas on the replacement glass?

Ya, go to an actual glass shop and have them cut you a piece of tempered heat resistant glass for it.
