Step 4: Electrifying I (with 1,5 Volts flash unit)

Now I show you how the HV-flash unit from the Fuji disposal camera could be placed in the lamp stand. Beyond the red velvet there is a wodden plate which has to  be pulled out. Then insulate the innerside of the brass stand with some tape and place the HV circuit in. Recover the wodden plate again and that´s it
The new switch will be placed in the screw hole at the side of the stand ann fixed with some melting glue. 
Now. . .in case you didn't mention it someplace. . .where can we get glass insulators? :-)

Hi everyone and hello to my friends <br> <br>Thanks for your rapturous applause ;-)))) <br> <br>It is such a good feeling to create new things from old parts.... <br> <br>that you like too..... <br> <br>I hope this will inspire you all once again like you do it to me with your awsome objects. <br> <br>electfire: Let&acute;s see what is cominng out with your idea <br>longwinters: This couldn&acute;t have been done without your support,- Thank you my friend <br>Winged Fist: To give the crown to this lamp I plan to wrap a textile cord (shoe lace) around the power cord as you have shown to us; very well done indeed;-))) <br>JKPieGuy: Let us see what is coming up to your mind with those parts you hold in your hands.... <br> <br>Grasshopper1221: I know there is another surprising idea raising up in your mind;-)....... <br>And last but not least <br>Polerix and Chemicus: Thank you: Your wish is my command.... or so... ;-))))))))) I will try my very best. <br> <br> <br>Cheers to you all <br>Aeon Junophor <br>
What a great looking looking lamp, my friend! Well deserving of the &quot;featured&quot; status, and the 5 stars I'm about to give it;-) My condolences to your family, and what a creative tribute to Wolfgang!
Mr Fist we are waiting for your creative expression to manifest, don't squander your gift, use the force.
Nicely done! I think I just have the inspiration I needed to finish my desk lamp, I've been (slowly) working on... Though I have yet to come by any electrical insulators as nice as that one... I think with my (extremely) large collection of glass stuff, I might just be able to work something out... <br>Here is a picture of the lamp currently - I am trying to go for something similar to the desk lamps you see in libraries (The last picture) but I am having a hard time sourcing locally the glass. I am also needing the support armature that holds the glass
I find this ironic! I just got some old porcelain insulators from the top of some old power lines that had fallen down after being abandoned in the swamp area up-north by my family's cabin and I was planning of making lamps with them or something! Also I was looking through my pa's old electrical things in the basement and I found some of those neon glass bulbs that were like the ones shown in the Instructable! He said that I could keep one since those things are now really rare and old!
and another great hit of technomancy, awesome buddy!
What a very nice lamp Junophor. The word cool don't even apply here, This went way beyond cool! Glad you are back best wishes to your family. <br>Looking forward to seeing more.
Once again your project does not disappoint, I like what Chemicus said, it is quite difficult to make something with so few pieces look so good, each part looks like it belongs and came as the whole. <br> The insulator also seems to be doing a good job of making that small neon test lamp look quite large. <br> <br>An inspiration to all, lets hope you get editors pick!
That&Acirc;&acute;s really impressive what&Acirc;&acute;s possible with this small number of pieces! Congratulations to this nice idea!
