Dumpster Find!

Dumpster Find!

Click to view full size image

Today I found these awesome Philips floodlights in a dumpster! these are 400w high pressure sodium, my first HPS lights! now there is two, but one of them has, unfortunately, had its front glass cover smashed. this really sucks. and the one that was intact had a bad bulb, ill post soon. I've decided to part out the smashed one, or convert it to some other light source when I get the parts. the light that has all the pieces with it, I'm going to clean up and restore to the best of my ability. unfortunately, it has concrete splattered on it, I have been trying to scrape it off but I'm going to need some sort of chemical to really clean it up. also, I don't have the brackets, they weren't in the skip. I'm going to make some at some point.
i have put a plug on it and the supposedly ok bulb, but I haven't fried it up yet because I'm too scared. ill post more pics of this soon

👍 No loss on the one with the smashed glass , Just take the glass off the good one to a glass place and have a duplicate glass made - a You will need to bring the good glass with you so they can match up the size and thickness for a You ,

Had to have a plate cut for a remote ballasted widelite years ago that had a broken plate - No biggy 👍

Nice find 👌

It does not cost that much to make a simple glass pane. No need to destroy something just because you are on a budget, wait until you can afford it.

I collect exit signs, preferably vintage ones.

I also have a little bit of a thing for light bulbs, too. Of course, hoarding them due to the incandescent bulb ban.
