Dear Steampunkers, dear friends
After two relaxing evenings in my laboratory I'm very happy to present you a very special lamp:
The Eye of Ra
This very powerful lamp is dedicated to the ancient Egyptian Sun God Ra. It's so powerful, that it's recommended to wear your goggles to protect your eyes...
Step 1: The Bulb: a Philips 437E With 500W
By chance I got this wonderful antique bulb from a nice friend. This Philips 437E is running with 230 Volts / 500 W and produces 11'000 Lumen.
To protect the bulb I planned to use a dimmer.
