How to store 1 Kw Stage Lights? « on: July 09, 2019, 09:51:27 PM » Author: lifeguard
So I'm going to hoard about 6 or 7 1 Kilowatt stage lights from the 70's or before, almost all GE except 1 philips from the 80's. What is the best way to store them?

Collecting lamps is a side hobby but I think it's cool nonetheless.

I'd say somewhere cool, dry and preferably soft. If you have the original packaging that would be a plus, if not bubble wrap or a box with packing peanuts.

Mainly the mechanical side of things

Shredded paper is also a good choice for packing lamps so that they have 'wiggle' room.

Depends on where you plan to store them, in a controlled atmosphere or a simple outside storage building. If you have rodents in your area, don't forget that since rodents will eat into the boxes and make nests and leave droppings. I use bubble wrap to pack and put some of the non poisonous mouse traps out with a kibble or two of dry dog food on them and place the area.
Works for me!
