Steampunk inspired lamp. Base is a gym stand salvaged from a skip many years ago. Base pipe salvaged from a scrap yard. The remainder of the fittings were new, 3/4" BSP malleable fittings. The lot was aged by rusting using salty water and then coated with metal laquer to seal it. The mains cable is covered with a bootlace, and at present the unit is dimmed with a variac, but I intend to put together a suitable dimmer.
Very cool project! And a great way to reuse old pipes.
Thanks! <br>
I want to do something like this what size is that piping these would make great outside lights along a long walkway with a different bulb or some kind of Vic shade <br>
Hi- The bulk of the pipe and fittings are for 3/4&quot; BSP- so about 1&quot; OD. <br>Hope that helps!
