Step 1: Stuff You Will Need
2. Horn speaker
4. Grommety thing
Stuff I had to pay for
1. light bulb
2. Bulb holder
1. Pressure cleaner
3. Screw driver
4. Furniture oil and rag
5. Wire cutters.
6. About 2 hours
Step 2: Cleaning
Step 3: Visualize the Lamp
So I pulled the telescope off the tripod and attached the speaker to the tripod with a bolt that came with it.
Step 4: Gut the Speaker
Step 5: Fit the Horn to the Tripod
Step 6: Mounting the Lamp Holder
This made it easy to mount the light fitting on to the bakerlite disc just drill one hole and screw it on
Step 7: Wiring
I'm fortunate enough to live in a location where we are still allowed to do our own electrical work, In some parts of the world it is illegal to do this step unless you are a qualified electrician, and in other places you must have your work checked over by an electrician before you plug it in. This must be because electricity is more dangerous in some parts of the world than others ;- ) ha ha just kidding.
In any case do not attempt to wire it yourself unless you know exactly what you are doing and are aware of the dangers involved with mains power electricity.
I had to buy 3 items for this project, the light bulb, the light fitting and the switch. total cost was around $20. I would of rather a black light switch but I could only find white.
First thing I needed was a grommet or cable strain relief I thought the cable on the computer power supply might have a good grommet but alas it was too big. Then I spotted the of pressure cleaner hose so I cut the hose to get the grommet like thing off it and it fitted. A couple of cable ties and now the cord cant be pulled out or damaged if some one yanks on it.
The wires are then threaded through everything and insulation striped back so it can be fitted to the light socket.
Step 8: Assembling the Lamp
Step 9: The Switch
These switches are easy to attach just cut the cord in a spot where it will be most useful, strip the wires back and screw the wires into the appropriate places. The cover is screwed back on and this provides the cable relief so the cord cant be easily pulled out of the switch.
All that is left to do its give it a couple more coats of oil and try it out.
