Steampunk Wall Lamp

Steampunk Wall Lamp made with Iron Pipe fittings

Nice “warm” lampshade 

Iron Pipe bulb socket

Iron pipe – different lengths so I can make the lamp fit the space

Iron pipe elbows

Iron pipe floor flange

Copper colored cloth wire

Brown Bakelite Leviton rocker switch

Brown Bakelite “Acorn” AC plug

Edison style bulb – but LED based!

A very simple one hour project – and I will have the lighting in the shack done. I will also get the KWS-1 on the air with SSB for Field Day, and get the Red Hot 40 on the air – the NorCal40A is now inline with power, antenna and key switched to it.

I have a few other projects on tap – all small, and I hope to take some really decent pictures this weekend. I also sold my paddles – since I purchased the Begali HST III – that’s it – I’ve switched for good to a single lever key.
