Greetings all, I've been working on some projects and I'm having a hard time trying to find a particular item--as in I don't even know what they are called. I've tried many searches to no avail so I thought "I bet people that make props or do cosplay might use these or know where to find some!" so I came here to ask.

Basically I'm looking to figure out where I can obtain what I would call "glass power lamp covers." You see these on old test equipment and basically every fake panel in a Disneyland ride :) But they're panel mount glass covers that you put a light behind. Even now I can't adequately explain them. So let me attach a couple pictures to more clearly illustrate.

Basically I'm looking to source them though not find them on old equipment--it's more for repairing old equipment/props and repurposing them or building new replicas.

Thanks in advance!

The dark red one next to the big toggle switch looks like regular Dialco panel lamp, The yellow looks like a vintage aircraft panel lamp. The lighter red could also be a Dialco but i cant tell the size. If its not big like the dark red its probably the same one as used on ANH vader belt boxes.

Try "indicator lens". All the major electronics suppliers carry them... Digikey, Mouser, Allied, etc. It may take some hunting to find the style/size you want...
