Another day, another lamp lantern...

Here is our biggest SOX lamp, fully lit.!  Cool

Cooking under SOX light is certainly different.  Cheesy

We tried lighting the lantern with the ordinary photocell in, but it cycled with the ambient light making it switch off after a few minutes. So we substituted the photocell for a dummy link.  Cool

We've chosen HPS as today's 'Lamp of the Day'

So here is our 400W Philips Master SON-T PIA Plus lamp, doing a good impression of a space heater.!  Cheesy

We got an HPS reflector lamp today, unfortunately the arc tube was knocked a bit off centre, but it still works okay.

So here is today's offering for 'Lamp of the Day'
 Cool
This is what was needed in the lamp's construction to keep the arc tube upright.!  Angry

Another lantern for today's offering.

I bought a Gamma 6 lantern on eBay, and from what I can tell it's one of the last versions made.

Here it is lighting up our kitchen.  Cool

All we need to get is a 4 1/2 foot length of 3" pipe mounted on a base plate and then we can put the lantern on the top.  Cool
