@Homebrewlamps, after following Medved's advice, please give us an update on how things go.
I had a feeling that at some point you would install an engine on your bicycle. Sounds like a potentially
interesting idea.
Also, is it truly 4 stroke? Or is it 2 stroke? Big differences between the two. lol
If you've done everything right, from there it could be errors from the manufacturing company in China.

His redrilled holes look like crap too. Even if a proper milling machine was used, he can't fix the design of the original manufacturer. There is one plate that looks like crap simply because the bezels around the plate screw area don't exist on the part he machined.
Do any of you remember the "snap together" plates that you could build the design you want with snap together pieces?

We connected up a porcelain BC holder so that we could have our Lamp of the Day

Today's choice is one of the four 160W SBMV lamps that were delivered yesterday.

We had to put together a lash-up with the correct socket, but here it is fully warmed up.  Cool

This person says they are selling this light at "an affordable price". Whats worse, they say it is brand new. And, they don`t say that it`s missing it`s power door!

Replied to the auther of that video that I have worked with MANY mercury vapor rectifiers in older broadcast transmitters.I have some spent ones kicking around in my tube collection.
Isn't there a risk they'll get broken...  Huh?

How long until other lamps cease production?

There can't be that many 35 watt HPS fixtures around, and only somewhat more 50 watters. Mercury vapor there's still an awful lot of 175 and 250 watt yardblasters and NEMA heads but how many larger and smaller wattages?

I may be wrong, but now that the Hamilton factory has closed, I don't think that there are any lamp manufacturers in the UK any more  Cry

There are still a few HPS street lamps and car park lights around here, but not all that many now, I don't think it will be long before LED claims its last victim  Cry
