Some of my Crestworth lamps stripped down and polished ready to be rewired and converted to GU10 bulb holders.

Wow those look very nice !!
It seems to me that Calum and Eliot have opened up an important area
It would be interesting to know why Mathmos have gone for GU10 if this format too is now under sentence of extinction, unless maybe they plan to make their own? (Surprising format choice, IMHO)
And once stocks are exhausted, I'm guessing China would supply if you're a large enough customer, so maybe there is some kind of a role for OG? Whether as a pressure group, or as something more?
There are many ramifications and implications I don't understand, but I do know we need incandescent bulbs for lava and glitter now and in the future.
Is there more information out there, perhaps, for us to learn more, please?
Great work cleaning and polishing them up! I've had a lifelong interest in lighting and work in electrical wholesale and I've bad news for you. The standard halogen GU10 lamps were banned under the EU Energy Related Products Directive last September. There's still plenty of old stock about but once it's gone that's it.
I have a contact in Belgium who works for one of the largest lamp (bulb) manufacturers in Europe. He's confirmed that the UK government were actually pushing for far more stricter controls in lighting to be introduced within the EU, making only LED sources permissible within the next few years. So it's likely that Brexit will have either no or a worse effect on the availability of traditional light sources in the future.
you misy like hard work, nordic's are a bugger doing the bulb fitting, im suprised youre changing the bulbs / fitting, i have no trouble buying the standard bulbs from ebay, and also use the halogen small baynet 370 lumen, 28watt = 37 watt, they heat just under a standard 40watt. BUT id be interested in what bulb fitting you will use etc for a later date when standard bulbs are gone. but if were leaving the E.U bring back are good ole bulbs :-)
really nice - a lot of hard work gone in there..
please may I ask - why GU10? thanks!
