Very nice. When was it made?
Also, is that a plastic refractor?

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

Yes, it is unfortunately a plastic refractor! Was made February 1999

Nice! I dont know why this has a plastic lens though. If you run this outdoors in proper position (lens down) it should be fine. The thinner square lenses tend to melt with 250w lamps.

Steve Zalimas (member slz here) likely has the correct glass for you. I'd start there. They pop up on Ebay but they never seem properly packed. Steve knows better. And his price is probably better too.

You definitely want a glass refractor.

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

Definitely hold onto that round plastic refractor though. Those are the best plastic refractors ever made IMO. Very thick unlike most plastic refractors. And these look good on a lot of fixtures too. If it's polycarbonate, it will yellow badly if used on a MV or higher wattage HPS but if it's acrylic it will look brand new after 40 years of use (and perhaps a good wash!).
