Leviton actually still makes these. The modern ones still have screw terminals.

Black "toombstones"....Geez, these are old.....our family's old kitchen fluoro luminaire used some similar in the '60's...then, again I'm probably not much younger than these either, so I must be an "old fossil" too!

I just got a Sylvania industrial that uses white versions of this. Cool sockets. I like them a lot.

Good luck with the move! I dread the day I have to back all my crap up to move. Gonna be a nightmare lol. I'll probably toss everything into my shed up to the ceiling and grab it at my leisure lol.

This is a nightmare... I said screw it and threw alot of things away (NOT lights!) but other misc stuff that I didn't care about.... I wanna take my lights with me and some other "essentials"stuff.

Yeah I love these sockets, the lamps just slide right in! You don't have to fight with the sockets and possibly break the lamps!

Yeah these Y shaped sockets are great for vintage fixtures. They have a bolt on mount which most vintage fixtures used instead of the newer slide on and the lamps just slot right in. Fortunately Leviton still makes them in white, not sure about black.

You poor thing Owen! I would not will moving house on my worst enemy....I moved two years ago and I still far from recovered from it and most of my stuff is agisted in four 20' shipping containers scattered far and wide.

Here in Tasmania shipping containers are an option and can be purchased relatively cheaply...1.5-2K dollars for a good one without too much rust. They bring 'em across Bass Strait full of stuff, but can't be bothered to pay to get the empties shipped back...one of the advantages of living on an Island I guess.

If I can fill four of them chockers, I guess you could too!

The one problem with that, Tim is as our society degrades around our ears due to the greed and immorality of elites and ever larger numbers of us either have to endure life-long debt bondage or living on someone else's property, continual moving is, sadly becoming a regular reality for more and more of us.

Currently I am cleaning all the lead containing paint off my corrugated iron roof with a heat-gun and a wire brush, so I get a fair but of time to look at "life" going by....and the number of cars towing trailers loaded to the nines with sofas and sideboards is HORRIFYING...somre poor bastards being forced to do it in the depths of winter too.

Here, in my area, a small ex-Government Housing Department house, built in the 1950's with rusted up galvo plumbing, war-surplus rubber wiring, no thermal insulation....etc. etc. will set you back a whopping $400 per week!! That about 280-300 on your Unites States money.....people are working stuffing catalogues into letterboxes all week to meet this impost with little left over...and this is the 21st century!

We were supposed to all have our own places and flying cars by now.....remember? But in reality we are regressing to 1840's Ireland!! Two steps forward and FIVE back! Greed will never be satisfied until we're extinct!

Rent for a decent single person apartment here in Rhode Island is almost $1000 per month. It's almost as much as a mortgage payment for crying out loud! Homes are very expensive in the New England area though because of the population density. The median price per square foot of a house in RI is $210. In comparison, the median list price per square foot in the United States is $156. I grabbed this data from Zillow.com, a website that shows homes for sale and the estimated values of residential properties that aren't for sale.

Here in Warrane, (a suburb built in the 1950's for low income earners by the Tasmanian State Government Department of Housing and full of Bogans in the 1970's when I was going to school) the median house prices are currently around the 250-300K mark. The Council is gradually jacking rates up and this is forcing people to either sell-up or infill.

When people sell-up, there are now "professional" land lords...(I personally know a Greek guy who owns about 150 houses) who buy up the properties and put a "dog box" in the back yard, (called "infilling") to get twice the rent. The poor buggers who live in the original house at the front of the property loose their yard and have to endure the cars of the people now living at the back in the "dog box" coming and going right outside their windows.

This property has a "dog box" at the back, the white car is that of the dog box residents but you ncant quite see it as it is behind the house. The property to the left is still a "normal" Aussie property with a back yard for kids to play in or a bloke to muck about with cars in.

Another BIG thing here is Old People's Homes...whole new suburbs with fences around them are appearing for this purpose. The fences is not like a "gated community" to keep the Bogans out, but to keep the "dotty wanderers" in! When someone's family commits them to one of these places, their full age pension, (or large chunk of their sold-up estate) is claimed by the Old Age Home and just a tiny stipend given on to the "resident"....and this is bloody PRIVATE sector...not Government! So they are as greedy as hell and this type of behavior seems to be encouraged by the Government.

In this view the long building to the right in the mid distance is an Old People's Home, as are all the small rooves in the centre...they are called "independant living". The hill on the right, Gordon's Hill...now they are digging and clearing all up the side of this hill for even more. The Mayor lives in the "independant living" in the centre of the view!

When I was a kid, the Government acted like a concerned mother toward the population and looked after our interests....not any more...they are gradually divesting themselves of any (remaining) responsibilities that have towards us and "washing their hands" of one responsibility after another....often by selling that responsibility on to the Private Sector.


I apologize for going off topic, but this "Gorilla In the Corner" can't be ignored!
