$25 Whiteway Cobra and 18’ pole « on: February 23, 2019, 10:06:52 PM » Author: Twin120112
You’ll all appreciate this one. Was driving past a local muffler shop and noticed a light pole tipped over. Upon further investigation, I identified the fixture as a 4 lamp Whiteway Cobra. I went inside the shop and asked an employee if I could have it. He called the owner and he said if I take the pole too it was mine for $25. Basically what he was going to get in scrap. We loaded it on my trailer and brought it back to my shop to tear into it. Once we bench tested it and confirmed it worked, the repairs commenced. Here are some before and after photos  Mercury Vapor Lamp

The plastic cover is currently at the local glass shop getting a new piece of plexi glass put in. I’ll update with the final result. I plan to put this up outside the shop at my house. This is the third one of these I’ve asked a business for and they’ve given it to me.
