All these lights have been donated to the theatre and are in need or much maintainance/repair. The only light I can find any info on is the LTM Pepper200.

The Bardwell & McCallaster had been wired to use a household screw base lamp, it is missing its reflector. The rest are mostly complete.

We actually have 2 of them. I'm hoping to get them both into the regualar intentory although then I wouldn't use them much because I use as many oddball lights as I can find...

Are they rare or something?

Nope, Different Lamp, The Lamp has a bayonett type Base(Similar to an 3" Fresnel) although I haven't examined it closely.

All the Units have that type of plug. Thats the only thing I think I'll need to change on the Mole-Richardsons and the LTM, The Bardwell had been completely rewired to use a household screw-base lamp which I removed and am going to reconnect the original socket(the one in the top picture) if the lamps are still available, otherwise I'll put in a regular Fresnel/Altman 360(radial) base and adapt some reflector out of our massive collection of old parts to work.

All the plugs will be changed out to stagepin once I get them all in working order.

Please repaint the god awful gold yoke.
I think they actually have a tint formula for paint resellers.

I'mm probably swap those yokes out too since I don't think a C-Clamp will connect to it..

Someone makes an adapter, I think.
I bet one of those nocturnal antique fixture people will be along soon enough to correct me.

Medium Bi-POST. Mogul (meaning "large") always had some sort of clamping device, sometimes spring-loaded, not "insert and twist." Bi-PIN refers to the TP-22 socket (FEL, EHG, EHD family). Medium Bi-post (lamps are no longer available, AFAIK) is probably readily interchangeable with the medium prefocus (360 radial-type socket), except use BTL-500W or BTN-750W) if one want to try to be somewhat historically accurate, otherwise fitting a medium screwbase for home or decorative use is a good idea.

It sort of looked spring loaded when I looked at that pic.

I thought Mogul meant "Looking like a mound of snow":rolleyes:
