Hello from the UK!! « on: April 07, 2018, 05:49:52 AM » Author: d3anio97
Hi all! Glad my account got approved (Thanks for the help, Patrick Smiley )

The nick's deanio although I go by TSM (TheSOXMania) on ATL. I mainly specialize in gas discharge lamps, lanterns (especially vintage sodium lanterns) and I'm also in the middle of restoring one. I'll have a post regarding that coming in a few minutes!!

The attached photo is of that project. it's an AEI Amber minor (better known as a Thorn Beta 5 since Thorn bought the design in the late 1960s). I've put a fair amount of work into the canopy so far but it still needs a few things.

Here's my ATL profile: http://www.allthingslighting.co.uk/memberlist.php?mode=viewprofile&u=934

What if I told you you could save 100% of your street lighting budget? Don't believe me? Buy an LED street light and run it for a week. the results will leave you in awe. (Aaaaaaand maybe wondering why you swapped that 70w SON)

Certainly surprised me just how few people are interested in lighting / lamp collecting. I'm more on the side of interested but not strictly a collector. I like tooling around with concepts and building random prototypes... One of which was to take mains rated CMH lamps and stick them on automotive XMH ballasts. The results of that experiment and what followed it are in this gallery:

Welcome to LG, d3anio97  Smiley  My name is Camden, I am from South Carolina, and my main interests are new old stock incandescent lamps, and high performance halogen lamps.  I did recently expand my horizons and get my own 55 watt Philips SOX lamp up and running.  SOX are beautiful lamps and it's so great to see members like you who have pictures and know more about them than me, since SOX are really rare here in the USA.  I look forward to getting to know you and seeing your posts  Smiley

Cheers!  Incandescent Lamp

Yeah, It's too bad they're being phased out in "favor" of LED (more like the civil enginerds got duped into using lower wattage, lower efficacy LED fixtures where a higher wattage would actually be needed!!)... shows you what they know... LED street lighting: The paragon of low wattages... and even lower lumen counts!
