Hello all, tried to do a test with the focault tester night before last and saw a very bright orange ligt in the center of mirror, thinking it was the filament of the bulb i am using i took out bulb and roughed it up with sand paper, tried testing lastnight and had the same question is this, is it that my filament is lined up with the hole in the tester and should be moved or is it some other problem, I am using the slit version, if that makes a difference...or is this how it should be, never thought it would be so bright. Thanks, in advance, for your help,
