Here it is before being turned on. I got this from a neighbor's dumpster. Anyone know the age/value?

There should be a date stamp at the stem.

Here is my version posted at Sunlamp Tan-A-Ray in my collection

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I like the fixture simplicity. What's the extra wire sticking up on the top of the "basket"? Is there anything missing?
Btw. I don't think it would cause skin cancer if used properly (for short periods and from a reasonable distance).

@Merc, I don't know what went there, or if anything went there.
Maybe some sort of filter?
@Solanaceae, what is scanner?
Also, what is the "stem"? Is it just the screw base? If so, there is nothing on it...

The "stem" is where the press between the wire seal from outside and inside envelope along with the exhaust tube is.

I meant to say the sheet of glass from flatbed scanners. My mistake.

I actually have a sheet of glass that is reflective to some degree. I usually look at lamps through floppy disks though.
I know, kinda off topic, but I just had to put this on here:

A good use for EOL lamps that cost to much to recycle.

Does anyone know how to clean the front of this off? It has some dirt on it and I would like to sell or trade this soon.

Got just a lamp for one of these; funny thing is it came in a Sylvania carton from the early 1970s. Is it normal for these things to make a snapping sound when starting up?

Yes, there is bi-metallic strip to disconnect the preheater filament inside the arctube after initial warmup. They are intended for the 120 Volt circuit realm. You can see I have 160W Clear Self Ballast Mercury Lamp.

I haven't lit this thing in about 3 years now, but I checked a video I took of it turning on, and yes, it did make a snapping sound.

I was talking to a woman and she said in high school she had three friends who fell asleep under one and all three woke up to third-degree burns (and probably skin cancer)!

Oh geez. Yeah, these things seem pretty dangerous to me. Then again they were made in a time before we knew the true effects of UV exposure.
