    Max Truss Goal Post span

    The answer is simple if you pretend you ignore the truss design for a moment and imagine you & you crew are on site to build it: how do you stand it up? How do you tip up a 20’ stick on end onto (or with) a 250lb base? How do you lift a 30’ span to the top of the posts — and bolt it up? How do...

    Conventional Fixtures Altman 360 ellipsoidal

    Sorry to all for having been away from the topic. Long story short, the theatre management is being difficult and unwilling to even credit lighting, much less spend $$ on it -- so my plans to grow a menagerie of oldies but goodies are on hold for now. To answer microstar, my old 6" Century...

    Name that Lamp Socket?

    I actually need one of those for a recycles S4 PAR we acquired. Since we are poser limited, I only use 575w lamps. PM me if you want to sell/trade! -luke

    Interesting. The units I have are all Medium Prefocus bases. I don't recall ever seeing an old grey Century Leko rigged to accept any kind of bi-pin lamp, much less the HX type. I've only ever lamped them with incandescent (burn base up!) or EGE/EGG halogen lamps. I would not think the lamp...

    Conventional Fixtures Altman 360 ellipsoidal

    These are the 1970's version, like the Model 2312 (spec sheet attached). Steel and cast parts. Still beauties! I also need caps for some 8x9 Century Lekos, same vintage. JPEG scan of their spex attached too.

    Conventional Fixtures Altman 360 ellipsoidal

    I've had fine luck with the EGE in our small space. As long as the throw is relatively short (under 25' or so), you get a decent light. Does anyone have spare burn bases (caps, not sockets -- sockets are still available) they want to dispose of? Possibly in trade for Altman 360 and/or 360Q...
