My ceiling fan has an unusual size fixture. It's larger than candelabra, but smaller than a standard medium. I suspect it might be intermediate, but I'm not quite willing to buy a converter with a huge shipping cost until I can get it confirmed. The brand is Hampton Bay. The fixture has a number E307185. Bonus points if you can find a method to convert the light bulb to a standard medium light bulb.

Call Hampton Bay's customer service to find out the socket size. Home Depot (or Lowe's or a specialty lighting store) should have intermediate base bulbs. – Niall C. May 21 '11 at 17:03
intermediate to candelabra reducers can be found online for ~$3 – Tester101 May 23 '11 at 19:33

That's an intermediate base. I found them on Amazon. http://www.amazon.com/Watt-Light-Bulb-Intermediate-Clear/dp/B000QUXZTC
