Westinghouse OV-20

Mounted in my garage and fired up. Based on early catalogs I believe the 250 watt lamp is a correct choice even though it does not fit the reflector too well.

You'll need a mogul to mogul socket extender to align the lamp to match the fixture's optics. That's what they did in the day.

Yes, it's the same light in my other pictures. This is firing it up for the first time to make sure it works before putting the lens on. I was thinking that a clear lamp would look nice with the refractor and was probably more correct, but the coated ones seem to be more available and at any rate I wanted useful light so coated makes a nicer light for working in my garage.

Even though these /PD coated lamps are neat, the light quality is pretty low compared to most other /DX (deluxe white) lamps. They tend to have a pale greenish tone since the reds are weak.

That is the model code for the later made Chinese "Westinghouse" and Iwasaki made lamps. I think the Iwasaki are better than the Chinese counterpart. Some explanation was posted some years ago.

Would a coated mercury lamp have been what was used in these originally, or did they come later? This flickers a bit, so I wonder if it's normal or the cheap chinese lamp.
