Cheap cobrahead streetlight « on: March 30, 2021, 09:56:11 PM » Author: desktoptrashcan
I’ve always wanted a cobrahead, but they’re always too expensive and I can’t buy them. If anyone has any leads on a listing under 40 or 50 bucks (shipping included), please let me know.  :hpscobrahd:

I got my first cobrahead on eBay, it was really just a matter of happening to check at the right time someone had one somewhat reasonably priced.
The real key with eBay is to pick a couple favorite models & set up saved searches, so it'll email you when that name shows up.

My 2nd one came from a ReStore...one of the guys on GOL let me know that particular store had a few after he'd been there & got one himself (again pure luck! that store is not really convenient, so I rarely go there just to see what they have).

(I only have those 2, wouldn't mind a few more - especially something MV, but I also don't have much space left for storing lights)

Hello Desktoptrashcan

I have some street lights that I saved from the recycling yard
And from my utilty company.   If u ever come out here in San Antonio to Austin area of Texas at all.  I am about 1 hour away
 From  Interstate 35.

It is pretty much impossible to ship one for that cheap.

I only looked at it briefly to see price & what the light was :) didn't notice they had more than 1 .LOL.
Already have an AEL 115 myself gotten from a ReStore.

I got 2 early 115's from a ReStore for $15 each. There was a 3rd one, but someone got it before I did. Have you seen my photos of them? I repainted mine green.

Not yet. Probably will be a while, since I put it into a part of the garage that is nearly inaccessible.  :-\
