Typical lineman construction in the 1920's-40's before OSHA and bucket trucks. Talked to many lineman from this era and they said it was "tough".

Well, I guess it's good I never asked for streetlights then, because they'll just say no, which is a shame too.
You never know. If a subcontractor is doing the job, he might give you one. Nothing wrong with trying.

They said they replaced the photocell. It could be fixed already, not sure. Loose connection sounds possible also. I was a little confused because they said mercury vapor, but both lights I know of are HPS unless there's another one.

 Yes I have Decapoed fluorescent  tubes esp the EOL
westinghouse is the easiest to decap and reuse
just twist end cap as glue will break.  

now decaping a fluorescent tube such as sylvania and philips.  I just use a razor blade to cut though and pry bit
on the end cap and use your pliers to peel it like a can opener. the pops free.  be sure to clip ends of brass pins
off as u want as much lamp lead as u can.  I have converted 6 foot slimeline to bi pin by reusing westy end cap and I just hot glue them on as i want to reuse the end cap in the future.  that tube is working on half dead
F40 2 lamp rapid start ballast. the yellow lead fails to heat the cathodes.  the lamp conversion from slimeline to bi pin was to extend life of such rare 6 foot F72W to rapid start.  If u look in my photo album. a BC capped Philips alto and there also a 6 foot sylvania lifeline slimeline to bi pin.

Iíve been trying to figure out a way to save the bases from dead incandescent bulbs so I can use them in making experimental bulbs in the future. The problem is that I canít do so without breaking the bulb. Does anyone know a way to cause the cement to break down?

Also, more importantly, does anyone know how to get the caps off of fluorescent tubes? Iíve been wanting to make a fake brass ender.
