Wire Cage Lights





If you've spent any time at RadioGuy's website, these will look familiar.

At $1000 and up, I suspect you could dig some out of your grandfather's shop or find them at a flea market and rewire them yourself.

Another alternative would be to make up your own cages for off-the-shelf sockets. A bit of brass rod and brazing would do the trick. You might even be able to get away with a high-temp epoxy, as long as nobody looks too closely.

Or more steampunk than epoxy use jewelers or light copper wire and then paint the wrapping wire with flux and apply heat and solder to fuse the wire for a more sturdy connection.
