Introduction: Lampshade / Heater From Old Laser Printer
I had an old laser printer I've found in the garbage, I'd like to disassemble and take out the step motors but I found an interesting light bulb inside a hollow tube. You can see here where that comes from.
Step 1: Disassembling
In one of the lamp metal terminals was marked 110V 800W, then I tried 110 AC thought the terminals and it turned on. A super bright and warm filament. So I started the process of making an 800W abajur / heater from the trash.
I used a metal stand from an old abajour as support for the light.
Also from the printer I took out that white wire which supports high temperature.
I passed the white wire thought a hollow rigid copper wire, to be used as a stand for the light bulb and also to resist to high temperatures.
The AC cable comes from inside the metal stand, I soldered the wires on the light bulb and isolated them with high temperature tape (kapton)
At the end, I have this super power abajur and it worked very well as a heater, it was the original idea!
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
