It'd be a good addition but there wouldn't be room for it unless the dimmer could go in the base and somehow be mechanically linked to the wheel.
Yes but how good would it be to have a mini chain drive off the valve turnwheel to a rheostat in the base - ok a translucent panel in the base would also help!
Awesome work, just the sort of thing I like.
The rail track lamp is just so elegantly simple heavy engineering
Not a light light then...
I seriously think there's a market for these, when you have more try them on Etsy (obviously after complying with safety regs). Might be better with 'cotton' braid flex which is readily available in a choice of colours
an easy way round it is make the lamp and sell the electrical kit to put it together by the customer
Or supply the plug, but not fitted to the lamp?
