The outside of the fixture has a gloss enamel clearcoat to protect the brass from tarnishing.

Where did the box come from? I want to make one of these now lol, and maybe even use 35w HPS or something. Also, I would probably put a twist-lock photocell socket on top since these button cells are really a pain to replace.

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

I prefer twistlock but a twistlock PC would look pretty stupid on a light this small. LOL it's not hard to replace. Just loosen three wirenuts and the retaining nut and it's removed. Do the opposite and the new one is installed. Again, I too prefer twistlock but the button PC is less noticeable and works fine for this.

As for where I got the box, it was just laying in the closet we use to store our stuff for my scout troop at our meeting place and a bunch of other kids and I were cleaning out the closet and I found this box and kept it.

BTW this is now on my shed and it looks great! Works great too!

I think a twistlock would look fine on this, but that's just me.

So is the shed fully electrified, or did you just test it with an extension cord wired to it or something?

the twistlock PC would take away from the decorative look of this. The button PC is only about 1/2" diameter. A twist-lock PC is around 3" diameter, not much smaller than the fixture lol.

The shed is wired (minus the interior light, though I have a F15T8 undercabinet light as a plug-in temporary light to see once dusk comes) but the shed uses a 50ft extension cord running from the house for power. It's funny, when I had the circular saw plugged in and fired it up to make a cut, the PL fixture would go out and only one would relight (the other would just strobe like EOL). the 175W MV M-250R would just dim a little but stay lit since it has a HPF ballast with a capacitor in series with the lamp (CWA).

Yeah, what guage is your extension cord? If it's #16 I'm not surprised. IMO one of the stupider things is the #16 100' extension cords...do I even need to explain why?

But yeah, they'll give a lot of voltage drop like that. I get power from my also-without-city power neighbor a lot, (when their generator is running) and although it's a 6Kw generator (well, really a 12Kw but it's a 3 phase rewired for single phase which cuts it down by half I guess) there's 325 feet of #12 SJTW extension cord between an outlet in their shop and my house. With the clothes washer going on the agitate cycle there's disco lighting in the house, incandescents are noticeably dimmer regardless of what is on, when the washer starts the spin cycle it bogs down for about five or six seconds and slowly gets up to speed, and the propane dryer does the same when I start it. Of course the lights also dim substantially when starting large, motor-driven appliances like that. LPF ballasts (BenchLite, etc) really don't like it, HPF does OK for the most part, CFLs are fine, but preheat takes noticeably longer and has more "misfires" or failed attempts to start. Things are just sluggish in general, I haven't measured the voltage but would estimate it's less than 105-110v even without heavy loads.

It's amazing, I have a 20 amp house for the most part. Things could definitely be upgraded. I'm actually going to replace the SJTW extension cord power feed (or at least most of it) with #10 UF direct-burial outdoor Romex. That should hopefully lessen the dimming/flickering/brownouts/sluggish motor starts I currently get when running on their power. Another step after that could be upgrading the feed into my breaker panel to heavier wire than #12 (my main breaker there is a 20A, but it has to be with that #12 wire). My house definitely has the symptoms of needing an upgraded electrical service with the voltage brownouts, etc. Sure, I mainly only run a 2000 watt generator when spinning my own power (less than 20A, 20A is 2400w) but there's always room for growth.

Yep #16. I'm not surprised at all since they're all being powered off the extension cord, but it was interesting the first time it happened lol. When we have the central air AC on in our house, and the unit kicks on, the lights in the house dim for a second. With the incandescents it's noticeable but not so much with anything else.
