McCann Lighting EconoBox™ - Shot of the Bottom of the Gear Tray

McCann Lighting EconoBox™ - Shot of the Bottom of the Gear Tray

Click to view full size image

This metal plate (called the gear tray) serves as a socket bracket, a ballast bracket, and a reflector all in one. You can see I've affixed the lamp label, telling the user what type of lamps to use (just run-of-the-mill preheat PL13s...) Those four white screws hold the ballasts on the opposite side of the gear tray.

I wanted to use foil labels but they didn't print too well on the school printer (I think my tin foil at home is too thin) so I decided to stick with the paper labels and simply laminated them to make them stand up to the relative humidity of outdoors a little better.

Nice. The paper is fine but the lamination might not withstand the heat (and residual UV) for a longer period... I'm afraid it'll yellow sooner or later.

Not a misoLEDist...

Possibly... The lamination is just shipping tape applied over the paper. I'm sure it won't hold up forever.

If you can find it, 3M book repair tape would last longer. It's considerably thicker and more resistant but more expensive. The heat and UV will destroy shipping tape quite fast. Also, laser printouts fade much less than inkjet printouts.

Some lanterns we have here were factory made with plain paper labels there, printed on a black Laser. 25 years later (the oldest ones i have) the paper is yellowed but still perfectly readable. Any tape would be dust by then, and possibly damage the label too as it cracks and peels off

I was considering gluing on plain paper labels and then spraying a clear coat on the gear tray with the label already applied, thus make the label part of the gear tray.

The coat probably is the first thing that will deteriorate

Yeah I had decided against the gloss enamel clear coat for the inside, just leaving the gloss white enamel paint. I did apply the clear coat to the outside though, to protect the brass from corrosion yet still retain the nice brushed brass finish.
