i Had found the first lab stand with ring clamp holding an insulator light ( one I did a few years back drilling through the more common Hemingway #42 insulator commonly used by railroads to hold an candelabra socket) These lab stands are also known as ring stands or retort stands. I had found that one at an yard sale sometimes last year but the support rod is a little bent halfway towards the top. The other two stands came from that one sale back in June where I found that Moe Light flourescent desk lamp and the partial case od HALCO 15w clear bulbs among some other miscellaneous electrical. The black ring on stand on the left was the second one I found and finally another black iron base at the far right which it didn’t.had no rings or other clamps attached. I then went on eBay a couple month back and found a lot that had a few older Fisher Scientific test tube clamps and the connecting boss head clamps to hold the test tube clamps to the stand rod. These test tube clamps hold light sockets that are straight sided very well. Here I have one gripping an Eagle socket extender with an old P&S Bakelite pendant socket screwed to it. I found it seems to be better using an extender in the clamps instead of clamping to the main socket body to prevent any crushing if overtighten. The Eagle extenders seem to fit right having a lip on top to rest in the clamp better. There is an Philips clear S14 11 w bulb inserted into the extender and had been making a great night light lately. This prolly about the easiest way of putting together an homemade industrial or steampunk style lamp I ever tried.
