Regent 100w Mercury vapor bucket

Regent 100w Mercury vapor bucket

Scored at Restore for $5. It does have the aluminum cover, I just took it off to show the ballast. The refractor is missing. Anyone know where I can find a new one?
The big pic shows the lamp about 5 seconds after startup, and the small pic shows it after running for about 4 minutes.

Unfortunately the ballast is welded onto the bracket so I can't put it in anything else (I probably am going to leave this fixture as-is). Do you know where I can get a new refractor?

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

Well, you can remove the bracket and then a ballast kit will come with some sort of mounting. If you do away with it, I'd love the ballast.

I might sometime convert this to 50w HPS, but if I do, you can have the ballast. I also have a 70w PSMH ballast that I might not need.

I know these Regent compact buckets aren't the best quality (if good at all) but I really always liked the design of these things. Another compact bucket I really like the look of is, I believe they're branded "Handyman Electric" (or something of the sort) and MAYBE sold under Regent as well I believe in the 1980's, 175w MV bucket light that uses twist lock PC's. I've seen a few members on here with these and have scavenged eBay for both of these fixtures with no luck . One house I lived in as a kid almost 20 years ago had one of those Handyman buckets mounted in the backyard, it didn't work at the time but thats my earliest memory of me taking interest in a light fixture and still like that fixture to this day even thought theyre ALOT less common these days.

I have one of these Handyman buckets that I will be obtaining soon, It is mounted on a friends house and they don't want it, it has a clear westy bulb in it....


Also Lumex.... What size is the refractor, I know of a few abandoned cheapo lights... They might have the right refractor... Those refractors break so easily though it is rediculous.. I was taking the bulb out of one of these fixtures and I just bumped it slightly *crack*..

Here's a Craigslist ad that has one:
https://eauclaire.craigslist.org/for/d/outdoorsecurity-lighting/6558744794.html
You could try contacting the seller and asking if they would ship.


HBL, Could you get a pic of those abandoned lights first? The refractor on this twists in and something else probably won't fit.
