I do sometimes, there's a series called Night Walk that was filmed in 1986 Toronto and shows a lot of classic lights like the SOX expressway lighting, the incandescent gumballs, the lighted street signs, and fluorescent street lighting that's long gone.

You're lucky it wasn't 240V..! Getting zapped with that whilst standing on a chair reaching up to pull wires through conduit is something you definitely don't want to do again :short:  :poof:

The worst and most recent time I got shocked was last December when I was helping my brother fix the vanity light in his bathroom. When I installed the new incandescent bulbs, one of them exploded after about 2 minutes of operation :o It was a pain to clean up all the glass and remove the remaining filament and socket from the fixture. I foolishly reached up to grab the stem of the bulb to try and loosen it and ZAP  :poof: It hurt and it made my whole arm jolt. I went turned off the breaker and was able to remove the broken bulb. 120 volts to your hand and arm certainly does not feel good and it was a shocking (pun intended) reminder to ALWAYS turn off the breaker before performing any electrical repairs and maintenance.

Today I saw an EOL M250R2 in 50w HPS. I'm no longer reporting any of Belmont's lights to Eversource due to fears of LED. I don't want a brand new bulb getting wasted.

I found an M-400A that was knocked down. I also found a Hubbell RLC-400 that was also knocked down. The GE was at the intersection of WA-161 and 362nd St E. The Hubbell was at the intersection of WA-161 and 194th St E.

I'm wondering whether some sort of corkscrew-shaped mirror assembly along the middle of the tube would help with this, reflecting more of the light past the arctube from the inside of the spiral?

I think the pick up in speed is due to Patrick limiting the gallery to logged in members only.  :wndr:

I would assume so, its cutting down some of the bots, and we should start to get the word for human guest to join the sight and collaborate, which we have seen in small scales over the past couple days. :D
