"Turbo" Carnival Lights

"Turbo" Carnival Lights

Click to view full size image

Go to any carnival or fair and you'll see these lighting the rides, concession stands etc. (that is if they haven't been replaced with LEDs) I've always loved this style of carnival light and I've finally acquired some via eBay...they came off an actual Allan Herschell carnival ride according to the seller (and the dirt that has accumulated inside). These use a tiny E10 base bulb.

Thanks for sharing these bulbs here, Peach_Lover

Are those base are wire clip-on with prongs?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Yes, that white cap on the back screws off and there are two channels to place the wire in. There are a couple of barbs that pierce the wire insulation to make the connection once you tighten the cap back on. The translucent part also threads off and this is how you would mount it/change the bulb. Really neat setup, looking forward to incorporating these into a project soon.

@Peach_Lover: I've seen similar on rides over here but had never seen the type of bulb inside the cover until I saw your other photo.

I'm old enough to remember when rides were lit with traditional incandescent lamps. Not sure if they were 240v or low voltage back in the 1960's

Nowadays Occupational Health & Safety requirements would dictate that lighting on amusement rides are low-voltage.

Say 'O' for an Osram, think about tonight today (old advertising jingle)
