My homemade Fluorescent desk light for my mom.

My homemade Fluorescent desk light for my mom.

Click to view full size image

My mom is an artist. And she needs a normal light to illuminate her drawings when the evening comes. So I made her this fixture out of weatherproof F18T8 fluorescent tube fixture and soviet desk lamp hanger contraption. Looks very rustic. I really like it. Inside I installed full spectrum Osram 5500k tube, so it would create very natural light.

Heck yeah, man! I like this one. Did you have to change the springs, to accomodate the extra weight?

The hanger is soviet made, it's heavy metal with heavy springs. A bit of tensioning with pliers on the black angle know and it stayed upright with no problems, considering inside the fixture there is a preheat ballast weighing a pound or so

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

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

Dazors have held their value quite well... plus, this has a personal touch that is important.
