Ah, I see you could use your fixture with a spanwire as well.
It would look pretty good on a spanwire, it has the perfect shape for it.

Yeah, I designed it with that in mind. It can either hang from wire or be clamped to a pipe. It has a pretty wide dispersion pattern and would work really well suspended over a city roadway.

Bring SOX lamps back!!!

FYI, LED's are NOT the most efficient lighting technology available! Don't know how people keep coming to that conclusion!

My other interests: sports cars, refrigeration, microcontroller projects, computer hardware, and any sort of custom fabrication.

Nope. Mine are probably the only ones in the area. I395 tunnel in Washington DC had a whole bunch of SOX lamp fittings for a couple hundred feet down the entrance set end to end like fluorescent fixtures, but they were all off last week! They look like either 35W or 55W in pairs with the bases in the center of the fitting. Those were the only ones. Otherwise I had never seen them before. I saw a couple lanterns recently out in the east end of Virginia, but they were just at a driveway and one had already been replaced with HPS since the first time I saw them.

A pity SOX lighting is rare. Most of the street lights I have in my collection are SOX lanterns. It is still common here, but it is dissapearing.
