    Hello again, been out of town and out of touch for some time, but am happy to be back. While gone I picked up a number of fresnel fixtures that have me a little baffled as to thier origan. The lamps are made up of a multiple pieced extruded aluminum body anodized in a dark copper color. The front and back portions are cast metal black in color and they take a G9.5 base bulb (Max 1K.). There are no identifiying tags,plates, or marks on these fixtures. Wondering if anyone has information as to the manufacturer of these pieces? Thanks in advance for any help. One48

    Ship did find out, Mine are made by Grand Stage, though later Major bought out their lighting fixture construction wing and Major marked their fixtures better on lenses, castings and reflectors in addition to just on the yoke.

    Thtat fresnel was a Major sold in Canada under the name LiteCon
    They also had a line of ellipsoidals using the same extrusion

    Overall they were a good fixture and one of the first to use the TP22 socket
    my only complaint was the fact that the focus screw was a piece of threaded rod and took forever to get from one end to the other

    Often wish I could find a bunch of them they always looked good when one had to have stuff hung in exposed public spaces

    TP-22 for a socket? That's of interest, all of mine are P-28s.

    All the ones I ever saw used the EHG Q750/CL/TP lamp it was available according to the data sheet to use a BTN as well
    The 8" was available to use a BTR or the medium bipost equivelent or with a different reflector a 2K double endeded lamp
    The ellipsoidals were EHG except the 8" version was available with a different back end to use a 1K double ended lamp
    If I can find the paper work I could scan the specs to a pdf I don't know if this site can support a upload of a pdf file
