Barn Find Steber Fixture

Barn Find Steber Fixture

Click to view full size image

Found this neat incandescent/HID(?) lamp hanging in an old barn that has been collapsing for a while, and it collapsed far enough that I was able to get it down from it’s resting place. I am not quite sure what this lamp was used for originally, as in I don’t know if it was used as an HID lamp or incandescent lamp. Given the shape and mogul socket my assumption is that it used to be used for HID lamps, but I could be wrong. It has no cord, just 2 wires that were jammed into an extension cord and the shroud/reflector is all aluminum with a glass front on it. Also found a mogul based 3-way lamp inside of it which is cool. 100, 200 and 300W type. No idea if it works, there was no power out there for it, nor have I tried to hook the fixture up to any power, nor do I have any other mogul sized sockets as of right now. But still a cool find in my opinion, and I gotta try and fire it up and use it for something.

It's a Steber light. I have a couple of these. They where usually incandescent. The bulbs this used was likely 1000-1500 watt. The current bulb is way too small for that reflector. Mine can be seen here

These are designed for incandescent bulbs but I believe they can fit 400w HID lamps just fine. The county fairgrounds in my county has them everywhere in use and they all still have incandescent lamps.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

A 1000W MH, or MV (BT56) lamp will work in this really well...just gotta find a remote ballast. Nice light!

There's no known cure for Westinghouse Lifeguard disease, so the only way to treat it is to find more!!! LOL LOL LOL

Oh cool thanks! That’s good to know.

I might try and see if I can get a ballast to put something cooler in there and have some fun with it.

Nice light, yeah if you get one of those remote ballasts on eBay you can run HID in it. Looks like it was designed for a high wattage incandescent too. I suppose if you want to use lower wattage lamps you can stick a mogul socket extender in it.

Yeah, either that or get a mogul to medium adaptor.

I think it was designed for a PS-40 or a PS-52 lamp in the 1000 watt range.
