    i blasted mine first cos they were painted then bead but they still looked rough. some will polish easier than others depends how old they are. i think the older and the more heat they have had the harder they get. these thing got hot enough to fry an egg on. no wonder theatres burned down

    I liberated this a while ago from an old cinema about to be converted into "luxury apartments"
    It's an old arc light. I want to put one of those filament LED lamps into it between where the electrodes go.

    can you imagine how dangerous those arc lights were in a theatre with all the long curtains

    The light looks great and I do like the tripod.

    That's a big lump in the background - you couldn't persuade it to follow you home, could you? :whistle:
