Got this at Walmart, to upgrade my lamp tester to test medium based HID lamps (on a remote ballast), and high wattage lamps too.

Hmm, I had seen those at Walmart, since they switched from the GE brand to Hyper Tough. I bet that's made by Pass and Seymour/Legrand, it looks like the ones they sell at Lowes.

I wonder... those knockouts, does that mean you can mount this on the older, smaller junction boxes?

-Date decoder of most US lamps 1960-present.

-Collects all types of lights.

I'll save any vintage lamp... dead or alive! Smiley

Yes, you can mount it to 4" or 3" box. Most lampholders can be, but some only have one set of holes with a longer slot that can be broken out. Whereas these style and some Levitons have that second set of holes you see here.

Medium base HID lamps don't get particularly hot, especially when running base down. Luminaires made 30 years ago with PBT (a sort of thermosetting Plastic used in many modern sockets) E27 sockets here, are still doing well with 125W Mercury lamps running base down, and 70W HPS lamps. I think Bakelite sockets would handle them as well. (150W medium base lamps may be too much though, especially since they also have smaller envelope than the European 125W Merc)

Use a cardboard washer when installing anything made of Porcelain with screws.. Such washers can be found in places that deal with computers, where they are (or at least are meant to be) used on screws holding the mainboard to the case

Yeah, I was wondering about that too.

GE even used plastic sockets on some of their streetlights with E39 mogul lamps. My 201SA from 1987 of 175 W MV uses such socket. Later though, they changed back to ceramic sockets, so possibly there was an issue with durability.

I prefer the porcelain for these style lamp holders, yet for a portable fixture, plastic would be lighter or less prone to breakage I think.
