What a find today. I found 3 NOS Philips SL* lamps from the first 3 generations.
The handover was in Vienna so there was no worry of transportation damage.

I am quite happy with this new addition ;-)

I have a 120V version of one of these... found it in a local restore... or atleast something that looks similar.

These are lovely lamps, I've only really just discovered them. I have 3 of the white based 2nd generation ones, on the lookout for some of the earlier black based ones now

I have a well used black based one with no date code at all.
The latest one, a white base SUNLUX SL I found last week in a recycling center while disposing of old streetlights.

Very beautiful! Known in the photos the custom base where there are lampholders. How did you do it? I would like to make one myself like that!

Its made of cheap dyi market parts.
Have a look inside:

Its basically a pvc cable channel, some E27 sockets, cable and a self printed stick

Here is the one I made, with different types of socket - B22d, B22d-3, B15d, E14 & E27. It's actually modified from a commercially made lamp display box, but it does the job
