Need-less to say, never never again..

It must be that I'm also "OLD & FOOLISH"..

GASGREEZER:

THERE YOU GO BRO, I WAS GOING TO SUGGEST THAT BUT I DIDN'T THINK ALOT OF PEOPLE CAN DO THAT WHERE THEY LIVE. S... ISN'T GOOD FOR THE AIR OR GROUND. WE USE TO BURN RABBIT, OLD WIRE WITH THE INSULATION ON IT. IT WILL PUT UP BLACK SMOKE LIKE BURNING TIRES. TOXIC AS YOU CAN GET. WOULD DO IT AT NIGHT IN THE FALL. IF WE GET CAUGHT UP HERE NOW IN MICHIGAN, CAN LEAD TO A $10,OOO FINE.

BUT YOU HAVE THE BEST IDEA YET, THAT OR MAYBE A CAMPFIRE. TRUST ME YOU DON'T WANT THIS STUFF NEAR YOU. COURSE SMOKERS WILL BLAME IT ON SOMETHING WHEN THEY COME DOWN WITH LUNG CANCER ??? SOME GUYS NEED TO HEED THE WARNING ON THIS SITE !!!

I was trying to find the porcelain light sockets w/ the half-inch threaded base at both Lowe's and Home Depot, and didn't have any luck. They didn't know what it was I was trying to buy.

I tried the Leviton part # 10051 on the Internet and still had no luck.

Anyone out there got any more info??? I need to buy a box of 10 to start out with. Thanks ahead of time...

RE: Keyless Light Sockets...

Hey Midway I have the same problem. I need about 50+ of them a year. I tried to buy from the local shops - (all of them) and they are trying to knock me for $7.00 each too. I even called one company I found that had them on the net for $4.56 each and tried to buy a box of 500 of them for a lesser price, no luck - close I could get at a qty of 500 was 4.50 each.

So now, I am trying to contact Leveiton directly and see what it takes to become a "dealer" and buy at the retailers cost. Heck if it takes a tax ID # I have one of those!

HELP ME TOO!

Anyone considered using 12v bulbs? Available up to 100W in a standard base. Low voltage means you can use the original switch without giving an electrical inspector a brain hemmorage (could use a relay if the switch can't handle the amperage anymore). Probably the easiest place to find them would be a marine supply place...

Travis good luck on trying to be a "dealer" for Leviton. They sell to places like EOFF, Platt And North Coast Electric Dist. here on the west coast, these companies use thousands of keyless fixtures --EACH Month. Your 500 won't impress, but one never knows. Like I said, I hope you have good luck. If they won't sell direct you might want to check on-line for companies like Satco, they might sell to the public. Good Luck.

Bob

I kinda like the idea of the 12 volt lighting... That is worth looking into. I have about 8 pumps outside that are buring a min of 3 60watt bulbs 12-14 hours a night...

I have the hidden bulbs using the 20 watt savers, but still that bill gets kinda high!

I'd be tempted to replace the entire conduit system as opposed to removing the potting sealer.
I used to work in an electric supply house in the 70's. Then, that black sealer was sold in bricks, looked just like black glass wrapped in paper. The ones we sold (although I can't ever recall selling one, the same ones got inventoried every year) were an asphalt product - I recall reading the label and asking about them.
The PCB products, as far as I know, were in liquid transformer cooling oils, and in semi-liquids - like in a flourescent ballast. That is their main function - state-stability under varying temperatures. I can't really see a reason for PCBs to be in potting sealer - that stuff was for arc-sealing rated explosion-proof wiring systems. But who knows - better safe than sorry.
If low-dose exposure to PCBs was all that toxic, all the industrial electricians of the past would be in trouble. We sold a brand of PCB transformer oil called "Cool Blue," and I remember one old guy used to rub it on his arthritic elbow. He was 80 when I left.
Low voltage lighting - a watt is a watt. Be aware that a 20 watt lamp at 12 volts draws roughly roughly 1.7 amps. At 117 volts, only 0.17 amps. Plus, there is an efficiency loss as you convert 117 VAC to 12 VDC. So - for the same wattage, you'd end up with a higher electricity usage.
