Introduction: Mad Professor Steampunk Lamp!

Picture of Mad Professor Steampunk Lamp!

Having seen loads of great light ideas on this site i thought I'd give a couple a go.
This one i didn't really think warranted an instructable so its 'only' a slideshow.

Let me know if you want one on this though?

Its just an old brass lampfitting wired to the internals of a UK dimmer switch with a 250v ac analogue meter wired in parallel with the lamp.

I'd love an instructable - especially one that showed a closer look at the circuit. That isn't a 240v voltmeter is it? Is the winding down of the current for the globe enough? How many volts is it?

I was thinking of making one of these steampunk guns with working lights which run of a 12v rechargable battery (which I'd hide of course =).

Definitely worth an ible!

I can almost hear it humming in the bright photos.

In fact, if it doesn't hum, I demand that you add a device to make it hum as it gets brighter.
