Second OV-15 silverliner « on: December 24, 2006, 01:42:26 PM » Author: NiMo
I recently refurbished a second OV-15 and added it into my collection.  Now, this was formerly an OV-400 (an OV-15 with a 400 watt mercury ballast) and for a while it just sat as scrap.  Recently I acquired a Cooper 70watt HPS floodlight and tested the ballast.  This unit worked and I took the ballast and starter and mounted them into that particular Silverliner.  After plunking $18 for a mogul base 70 watt HPS lamp, it works fine.  Repainted andf with new nuts for the slipfitter, this unit looks and perfoms well. (I'd like to use it outside).

Update. I gave this particular lume and a mounting arm I made out of 1-1/2" conduit to my sister-in-law and her husband as a Christmas gift  ;D

That's nice. What did your sister-in-law think? ;-) BTW I have a question, when did the OV-400 come out? The OV-400 would basically be the same thing as today's Cooper OVX.

The OV-400 came out about the same time as the OV-15.  It was available as a unit package (with arm, leads, lamp, and P-cell).

Well, if you go through the archives, I think I have a thread titled "Trivial Triva" posted.
