Hello! I'm having a problem and have ruined quite a bit of incandescent light bulbs over it: I need to open the thing just below the thread and I have no idea how. I've tried doing it with an X-acto knife, but it never breaks evenly, and usually, there are tiny cracks along the edge. Anybody out there have experience doing this and any words of wisdom? Thanks in advance :)

Hello, I am on a mission to find a very very bright led preferably in red. I have seen lots of bulbs with ranging prices but don't understand how bright they are. One led I have seen is the Luxeon Rebel LXM5-PD01 which comes in red and is 112 Lm/W, I understand that it means 112 lumens per watt but how bright actually is that? And what would be its power consumption? Thanks

Hey guys I recently salvaged the bulb from and InFocus LP1000B projector. I want to use this bulb as a light source but am not sure how to go about this because I do not know the voltage to run the bulb at or if the power to it needs to be limited somehow. From my research I believe it is a 350 watt Metal Halide bulb. Thanks for any help.

Oh what to do with the light bulb now that you're basking in the efficient glow of your CFLs? Well, you could convert them into these light bulb lamps as Sergio Silva has done. It's a pretty sweet item with neodymium magnets holding them in place on an included acrylic plate with embedded bits of steel.However, the price tag is $650 for the set which is pretty flippin' ridiculous for what can be remade with scrap and $10 of materials, if that. To be fair, the light bulbs Silva makes are sturdier than the regular item, are all made by the original artist, and are limited to a run of 66. So you're buying some design-y street cred before they get knocked off and sold for one-tenth the price. Linkvia bbgadgets

Lighting has taken another step towards energy efficiency as Toshiba stopped making incandescent bulbs yesterday. It will now be focusing more on other lighting such as LEDs. This is all great news as incandescents wasted a lot of energy as heat instead of lighting. Now with a greater focus on the energy-efficient options we can expect to see quality and efficiency improve as prices come down.

I'm wanting to create a giant hanging light bulb lamp, similar to the ones I've uploaded, but I'm not really sure how I would go about doing it. I think I would make it out of plastic. So I would need to create a mold and then make two halves on a vacuum form, but I have no experience doing that. I'm not sure how I would make a mold of a giant light bulb, what materials to use and how to make it. I had thought about maybe cutting something out on a lathe but I don't have a lathe and it seems like it would have to be pretty big. I also thought about paper mache but I was afraid it might be too bumpy and light bulbs are smooth. Also once I have created the vacuum form plastic halves how I would attach them together with out having a large seam show.

So I was considering going as Nickola Tesla for Halloween and showcasing his ideas as sort of party tricks...like a Tesla turbine blade and whatnot. But seeing as he is primarily known for electricity work, I thought it would be cool if I could somehow come up with a way to make a lightbulb glow while holding it. I tossed around the idea of running a powersource to a conductive glove to power it and also of making a self contained powered bulb but not sure. Any ideas on how to make some sort of electrical phenomenon illusion? Thanks.

So I was wondering do you think it would be possible to take an old ligth bulb hallow it out and use it as a fish bowl for a mini fish? Im just not sure should I put a small plant in there and if so what kind of plant so maybe just a little air pump while Im gone. Or would a small fish be fine if I put some rocks on the bottom and then just changed it once a month or so? Or would it end up being every day do you think? Ethan PS I hope people dont bite my head off thinking Im a horrible person I just like the idea of having a fish in a light bulb I think it would look cool so Im asking before I do it and accidentally kill a fish...

Hi there I feel ashamed to ask this question as it is probably so simple I have some small MES bulbs.. they have 6/8V 0.15A stamped on them I want to run them off a battery... on a parallel circuit... would 4x 1.5V batteries (6V total eg 4 AA batteries) in a battery holder work for them?? and would I need a resistor to stop them blowing?? (I am trying to run 3 bulbs in parallel for an instructable... best reply gets put in the credits at the end, but you don't get royalties lol!) any help welcome Will

I've found a few projects that touch on converting a standard light bulb to a LED configuration. But nothing that I have come across has a complete diagram for the conversion. I know that LED lights will last longer than most lamps and are much cheaper to run. But they cost upwards of +$20 each! Any help would be AWSOME!

Which is the best yet economical projector light source that can be used with a 35mm Geneva projector?
Light sources available in market or the ones that have to be constructed, either will do the job. It is a college project with limited funds so both economy and quality are to be considered.

Hi there I have got a projector and the bulb has gone. I think we can agree they are really expensive and therefore it just becomes infeasible to keep buying new bulbs. so I was just asking whether you know how to replace it with something cheaper and longer lasting. I had the idea of LEDs but I would not know how to do it. thank you Hantly

Is there a way to get colours to be more contrasted so that they can be seen more clearly? I want to take this: https://www.instructables.com/id/PROJECTION-BOMBING/ and turn it into this: http://www.gregbernstein.tv/walmartwatch/ Also, is there a way to increase the lumens of a projector by changing the bulb or something? I have a feeling my projector isn't bright enough to project outside. I was thinking of using this: https://www.instructables.com/id/Halogen-Work-Light-Projector-Mod/ Would that be bright enough for outdoors projecting or is there another cheap alternative?

I'm doing an experiment by growing plants under colored led lights, so do led lights emit specifically one color. For example does a red led light emit only wavelengths of light that are red and no others. I want to make sure that only one color of light is existent to get accurate results. I hope this makes sense. Also if you know of any 1-colored high watt led lights please link them to me.

Really, I've changed light bulbs forever, but can't figure this one out. Search You Tube and DIY for a video but only found typical light bulbs or recessed lights. Your help is much appreciated.

Instructables users have inspired others yet again. Using LinuxH4x0r's Light Bulb Greenhouse and the dual homemade responses to the $650 Light Bulb Lamp--by bumpus and CYNICALifornia--as a starting point, Treehugger has added to the list of ways to reuse old incandescent light bulbs. Plenty of options to both make something useful and help protect the environment at the same time.Link
