    Following up from a post that was kicking around a while back about making theatre lamp stock into a domestic lamp...

    Well, this is my pot plant made from an old theatre lamp, I believe it is some sort of Strand PATT fixture - can anyone enlighten me??

    I think you will find it's a Strand Acting Area, nick-name ack-ack, look in the Strand Archive to check.

    Thats an Ack-Ack if I ever saw one! I haven't seen one in years! Strand certainly made them to last! Even if it wasn't in a grid!

    I have another 3 or 4 of them I think still with all lamp base etc. in tact however have never used one. They strike me to be a very large crude form of a Ray Can.

    Pardon my American-ness, but is that anything like a "Roy Light"?:)
