What size is your lamp.? « on: November 04, 2019, 02:51:23 PM » Author: Mandolin Girl
Just a thought, spurred on by some uploaded pictures by SilverRay

It would be useful when uploading pictures of lamps, particularly unusual or rare ones to include something that would give people an idea of the size.

One can use ruler or Size AA battery as for the scale of these bulbs.  They are wonderful to show how big these unusual bulbs are :)

Yep. Rulers, average 60 watt light bulbs, AA batteries, your arm or hands are all good comparison objects.

Yes, we do have one that we can use, but a framing square will let you show width and depth of a lamp at the same time.  8)

And for just under £3 you can't go wrong.  :)

I generally include the shape code (eg A-19, BT-56) in my lamp uploads which denotes the size and lamp shape for more common lamps. I suppose for less common stuff I have a 6 inch metal rule I could include in the frame.

For really big ones like large MH lamps and large fixtures you could use a standard 20w, 32w, or 40w fluorescent tube that probably everyone here has seen at some point or another.
