You are probably right and thanks for the information. You probably noticed the "deliberate" mistake in the Diode numbers also ..... remind me to check the spread sheet after I paint and drag a line of data ..hee hee.
The reflector doesn't allow very big attachments so I will send you the pictures directly. It looks exactly like the one on the site of the URL below.
I am sure that there is a rig in that line up of parts ... energy saving lamps can't be all bad news can they?
Well thanks for the reply and GL 73 Pete fmt.

Thanks for the 'forensic analysis'. I am tempted to build a high-voltage QRP transmitter from one of these beasts ;-)
Sure that "DK51" is a unijunction transistor ? I found a french site (in french language) which seems to say that the DK51 is more or less compatible with an MJE13001, which is a 600 Volt, 0.2 A silicon NPN transistor. Looking at the circuit, it seems to make sense:http://pagesperso-orange.fr/doumai/Clartec_Lampe/Clartec_Lampe_8W.htm
