TWR 300MM Tower Beacon

I bought this at an antique show a little over a year ago. The seller didn't know anything about it and didn't seem to care either way so I got it for WAY less than the ones on eBay !

Its currently wired to a 30FPM flasher/relay and resides in my living room and man is it BRIGHT !

I use to work for a company that sold these...you don't realise just how big they are until see them up close. Great catch Tim!

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Looks like a water bottle in the thumbnail. And yeah they are massive. I got to see some LED beacons for wind turbines at a convention and they were like 2' across... they look so tiny when they are actually up there.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I have always like this slow flashing light that fades out

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Thanks, Eric i figured they were big I didn't expect it to be so HEAVY ! This weighs about the same or a little more as a M-1000

@ Lumex120 : There is a huge wind farm I pass on my way to a race track in Indiana, ( The wind farm is in Ohio right by the state line) All of the LED beacons are linked together, it looks really CREEPY at night to see miles and miles of red beacons all flashing simultaneously, perfectly in sync !

@ rjuna2 : The big bulbs in this definitely fade in and out ! It's kinda mesmerizing to watch !
