My Homemade 35W HPS Highbay Lit in the Laundry Room

My Homemade 35W HPS Highbay Lit in the Laundry Room

Click to view full size image

This picture is from a couple weeks ago, before I mounted the Western Electric fixture, which is now just to the right of the mini highbay. I mounted the highbay here to give it a place to stay. It's not wired up or anything, I just have it mounted. I ran an extension cord from the wall receptacle to the highbay for the picture though. Plenty of light, but a lot of it is useless light because of the really low CRI. I can't think of a practical application for my mini-highbay, but perhaps someday I'll make a remote-ballasted 50 or 70W PSMH version or a 100W MV version.

Yep, got a 35W HPS ballast in August and then I put this bad boy together. I used some scrap sheet metal for ballast brackets.

Yep, because they're no longer made, so I had bought packages of 40, 60, 75, and 100W incandescents. Mostly all of them are 120V 60W and 130V 100W.

If you were to make more of these would you sell them?

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

@ Zarlog: Sure! I don't anticipate making any more but if someone had an interest and was willing to pay a little extra for it I'd do it. The only issue is that the ignitor in this is microscopic, so it fits with no problem. I don't know if a regular sized ignitor would fit. I had gotten the ballast and bucket for free and bought the round boxes, screws, cord, chain, socket, and lamp. If I had bought all the stuff it would have been quite a bit more expensive. A remote ballast or incandescent version would be super easy to make since I'd only need one round box section.
