Incandescent Yard Light

Incandescent Yard Light

Click to view full size image

Here's a nice example of an incandescent yard light. The enamel looks great with a good cleaning and I put a new arm on it since the old one was rusty. The new arm is shorter than the original (12" vs 18") since I plan on mounting it above my entry door and didn't want the extra leverage on the box. also included a photoswitch.

It looks brand new, nice job, they built them to last back in the day, and you'll get many more decades of service out of it...

Yeah these guys are nice and simple, which means they LAST! There's not 50 million components that can go bad with these old dogs! I love how nice the porcelain is. Almost all the time with incandescent street lights, the porcelain reflectors get all rusty from a-hole teenagers that threw rocks at the bulbs or shot at them with BBs and hit the reflector, chipping the porcelain coating off, exposing the steel. And the steel quickly rusted, often rusting right through! I'd like to find an incandescent street light with a perfect reflector like this (either a radial wave or crescent moon).

I was lucky with this fixture since the socket it only held in by a spring a two grooves. That allowed me to replace the wiring since what little insulation it had left was very brittle. Many of these lights have screws holding the socket on. Those screws are usually rusted and any attempt to remove them always seems to end up breaking them off.

I still have not decided what lamp to put in this yet. An 60-100W incandescent would be nice, but if I intend to leave it on at night occasionally I'm not sure that's what I want to use. I also have some 13W CFL's that would last quite a bit longer and use less power but I'm not convinced yet if that will look acceptable. I have also considered getting some LED filament bulbs to try and that may fit the bill but they are pretty spendy.

Ah yeah the screws always rust. It's too bad they don't spend the extra five cents on stainless hardware lol. Yeah I'd use an LED filament lamp if you can find one cheap. I found some at the ReStore for $2 a pop but they're frosted. I'd like to find some clear ones to use in my incandescent street lights, preferably 100 or 150W equivalent.
