a lamp that flickers

Hi, I've discovered this site just yesterday.... I try to use the search engine but it doesn't help. I'm preparing a location for a video. Now, I need to simulate an almost broken lamp, you know, a lamp that flickers. We're using incandescent lamps. It is possible to build a switch (or something else) that can simulates this effect on an incandescent lamp? Tnx in advance, ciao

Ideas for a Telescoping Arm for SpectrumLED V2.0 (LAMP)?

This is the project: https://www.instructables.com/id/SpectrumLED-V20-the-ULTIMATE-Variable-Spectrum-Lam/ I want to upgrade the telescoping arm mostly because I can, not because I must ;) I don't open/telescope it very often because right now it's too long at its shortest position. I adjust the swiveling "head" all the time, and when the rod is tightened so it's easy for me to telescope it, the head swivels which is annoying. I would like to separate them. I already have an idea which I think will be good for the swiveling head: http://woodgears.ca/tripod/head.html I've come up with the idea of making a scissor lamp, but I don't think that will be very simple to make, so I was wondering if anyone has a simpler and better idea for making something that telescopes (and locks).

Fixing a built-in dimmer on a desk lamp? Aka: Retrofitting a California CFL compliant lamp? Answered

I live in California and just bought a Pottery Barn desk lamp designed to dim. However, because of the new law requiring CFL-compliant lamps, the dimmer has been tampered with to prevent it from actually dimming, even though the switch is the original. I opened the bottom and found the dimmer switch was encased in cardboard. I removed the cardboard, expecting this would fix the problem, but it didn't. Nothing else looks "tampered with." How can I make my lamp dim like it should A picture of the guts is here: http://www.talesofthepack.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/lamp-guts-e1332022609831.jpg And the model is here: http://www.potterybarn.com/products/architects-smart-technology-table-lamp/?pkey=ctask-lamps

kick out lamps with emp

Hid lamps (sodium and halide) are used for outdoor lighting they are sensitive to momentary power interruptions (even the smallest ones that dont make computers reboot) and mechanical stress (like beating the electrical pole with the lamp). they extinguish and need some minutes to cool down before they strike again i thnk it should be possible to kick out the lamps with emp (electro magntic pulse) as well. how strong pulse is needed to affect this kind of lamp ? is it possible to pack such energy in a portable device ?
