A good source of old-style wiring was just recently posted in another thread: http://www.sundialwire.com/


Excellent work on the lamp.

Now, that I've gotten all the "background" info, I will comment on the lamp: I really like the hook as the suspending device and the way You used the cogwheels. It almost looks like one of those old coal mine lamps just up-side down.
Would You mind posting a pic with the lamp lit in the dark, to see all the effects?
I know, "women, never ending demands...."

Reminds me a bit of some of Art "elliot" Donovan's pieces.

 It's not often anymore that a "Steampunk lamp" makes me sit up and take note. But this lamp actually drew an audible "oooOOOHH" from me!
 Really, it reminds me of something I would see as a background prop in the movie "Forbidden Planet". A kind of a "Buck Rogers" feel to it.

 Looking forward to seeing this one completed!

 P.S. I too was drawn to the pots in the background.
