Default Minox enlarger light bulb

Hello my new friends. Greetings from Colombia. I have a Minox Model II enlarger and I would like to know if someone out there has heard or seen of a contraption using a light bulb that replaces the original Dr. G. Fischer's light bulb which is no longer available.

Thank you very much and best wishes
EDUARDO

Welcome Edubarca. Can I ask: What is special about the Dr Fischer bulb that prevents the use of any other bulb?

Sorry for late reply. Well, the lamp required by the Minox enlarger model II uses the filament towards one side. It is not located precisely in the center of the bulb. Why is this required, I don't know. This complicates matters because, as far as I know, only the original Dr. Fischer's bulb required by the Minox factory is the one to be used and as far as I know no other lightbulb manufacturer has made this type of bulb. Perhaps someone here knows why is the and if there is any solution apart from throwing away the enlarger or leave it as a door stop.
