I fitted a replacement glass globe into one of my oily lampses.  :oil-ltn: :bulbman:

The original glass cracked on Sunday after getting water splashed onto it.  :sadbulb:  :oil-ltn:

We combined two lengths of two core braided flex into a single length of four core flex, so that when we start to rewire our Pointolite control gear we have the correct flex to do it with.  :bulbman:
