Default Homelite Light

Picked this up at a flee market. Now, do I restore it? Display as is? or sell it to a Homelite collector?




Very well built, Cast aluminum Twist lock connector on the back. Gasket to grip the lamp, and a Mogel base?

Homelite collect eh?

Interesting concept.....

It is a very interesting thing, just not sure what it was used for.
Mogul base must have been one hell of a light.

I should have shown one together. Here is a picture from a pair on ebay

Note that they have a plumbing company name on them I have seen references to them being used by Fire Departments. The lamp is about the size of a old outdoor flood lamp light bulb, it just has a bigger base, I suspect to hold the glass better.

Where does it end though?

I am having a three way discussion on kijjii trying to part with Coleman stuff.
Collecting things becomes a sickness and one day you realize you have to thin the herd way back.

Needs and wants.

I like those lights but I sure don't need them.
Good thing you found them and have room ha ha.

Exclamation Re: Homelite Light

The town of Parsippanny NJ, still uses several of these lights, along with the 2 cycle light plants! They are part of the OEM there, and are used at their fireworks display to light paths and walkways that otherwise would be dark, for access to the field where the fireworks display is viewed (a large football field, above the school). They do throw out a lot of light, and the Homelite gen plants are LOUD!

That is a great case of use what you have. If I had to do that job I would buy some battery powered LED work lights. The bulbs for this light are still available and cost $15.00

BUT I guess no one is going to steal a big hot light plugged into a hot loud generator.

All ready for show season. Has a new R40 LED bulb. I had to make a zero length Mogul to standard base adapter for it.
