    About ten years ago I bought a ten metre string of LED red stars from a Christmas Store in Subiaco. these are very good lights and have worked a treat, but some sections of the strand are out. I need some replacement bulbs to do the trace the bad bulb thing with, but have had trouble finding a matching base (the part that goes into the socket)which seems to be different than any kind I have ever seen before.

    Okay... Obviously image embedding is going to be complicate here.

    I may have what you need, I have a string of those in the shed not sure of the colour, I know they are missing some lights. I'll look over the weekend.

    what about carefully bend the legs of the LED and remove it from the base, then fit a new LED to the old base? i have done that before on some lights years ago
