I had to take her down for a while ! WAAAAAH !!

I had to take her down for a while ! WAAAAAH !!

Click to view full size image

The roofers are coming soon to replace my garage roof and since the pole was attached directly to the fascia of the garage roof they asked me to space it away from the roof about 6" I decided just to be safe and take her down instead. Before she returns I plan to come up with a better pole and method for securing the pole to the garage as I was never really happy with the current setup (2" EMT ). I also plan to redo the wiring so it runs inside the garage instead of the PVC conduit running along the wall . This got disassembled to get it safely down as it weighs a ton !

Yeah I would have done the same just to be safe. Can't imagine how much this weighs. I have a 1000w ballast and that alone is a good 25ish pounds.

Better safe than damaged!

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Better safe than damaged for sure! I need to find an F-series myself for the backyard.

With the original (FRIED !) potted ballast and cap , fully assembled it took 2 people to get it out of my Subaru station wagon ! As is , it weighs roughly 100 lbs or so . once the roofers get here and do their job I'll get it back up and running on a better , stronger pole/mounting system . The fact that the original pole is 2" EMT with a coupling in it bolted with 4" lag bolts into the fascia gave me nightmares of someone leaning against it or something and having it go crashing to the ground !

2" minimum GRC mounted to galvanized strut is your friend.

The EMT SEEMED like a good idea at the time BUT ! I think that Wide-Lite 2.0 will involve the 2" rigid and some steel . I'm also planning on moving it to the center line of the roof to take advantage of one of the 6 X 6 posts in the garage.

3" rigid heavy wall with 3 foot threaded stub out in concrete for the base. Won't go anywhere.

You must have a good back. That is a heavy beast of a light! I've always loved their design though, and it's one that has lasted for many decades!

It's ridiculously heavy which is why I took it apart to get it down! Besides , if I didn't I would have either went through the rotten roof or screwed up my back! (neither were an option )

And yes , they are simply beautiful ! The amount of time designing these must have been unreal .
