They look like the panel bulbs for a PDP-8, which are the same as for
things like a DX11 or RK05 drives. Did the earliest Unibus machines also
use bulbs or were they always LEDs? Anyway, they're worth saving. The
correct bulbs are hard to get now (the types I've found available are
higher current than the correct ones).

Bi-pin fuses are about the same size but don't have the glass, er, bulb, on
top :-)
