Finally, Robert I got here! The URL you sent me did not work for some reason, so I had to go through the user galleries (which are in order the member joined, not alphabetical so it is time consuming).

Very interesting lamp, love to know how the three power levels are achieved.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Hi Andrew, I just PM'ed you

For those who are interested how the life of this specimen worked: In early life of the bulb, using both circuit (the contact ring and the bottom contact of the cap) would not work correctly. But, using the bottom contact only work without fail. It lasted a few years with two way light fixture without any problem until it quit.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
