Seller: industrial-antiquities (804) 100% Top-Rated Plus, Location: Urbandale, Iowa, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 201717831701 Here's a vintage Crouse-Hinds explosion-proof hand lamp for use in hazardous locations that we've converted into a -super-cool hanging pendant lamp. This uber-industrial light has finely detailed, yet super-heavy-duty, construction throughout. And though we've cleaned, buffed, and polished it, ample wear marks still speak to its years of use in a factory setting. This robust fixture features a cast-aluminum housing that is nearly bomb proof. To change the light bulb you simply twist off the bottom glass/cage assembly to access the socket, which is sized for regular household (medium-base) bulbs. Takes 10 seconds. We replaced the fixture's original cord with a heavy-duty, 14-3, 600-volt, rubber cord. That supple-rubber cord is 1/2" diameter and over 6' long, giving you or your electrician plenty of flexibility in hanging the lamp near the ceiling or hanging 6' down. The cord has a grounding wire, as does the fixture. The ceiling end of the cord secures to a vintage steel, 4"-dia., junction box cover. The lamp has been completely disassembled, cleaned, expertly restored, rewired, and tested. In one of the photos we included a 12-oz. beverage can to give an idea of the fixture's size. A few specs for the lamp on sale here: Diameter at its widest point: 5"Height of fixture only (no cord): 20.5"Range of distance from ceiling to bottom of fixture with supplied cord: 2' to 8' Weight: 7.5 pounds At Industrial Antiquities we guarantee your complete satisfaction because each light is: *Completely disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. Before you buy any light, make sure it has been disassembled, cleaned, and refurbished. We've taken apart thousands of them, and believe us, when you buy them "as is" you will find many of them nearly impossible to take apart, with unsafe and inoperable parts.*Refurbished to the highest standards. Each light-fixture component, down to the tiniest fastener, is inspected and then thoroughly refurbished. Threaded parts are "chased" and lubricated as necessary to ensure everything fits snugly and precisely as it should. We try to keep fixtures as original as possible, but we don't hesitate to replace fasteners, gaskets, and other internal components as necessary, always using parts of equal or better quality than the originals. Though these old lights were generally built to a level of quality unmatched in today's world of imported light fixtures, we'll occasionally run across rusty steel screws and other fasteners that are better replaced with stainless steel or brass fasteners. If we replace any major components we always mention that in the description. Metal housings are treated in a way to restore their former glory while preserving their vintage look, then treated with a no-film corrosion inhibitor. Every fixture is different and requires a customized course of treatment, but rest assured that the fixture you are buying has been professionally restored in every way to ensure many more years of enjoyment and safe, reliable operation.*Guaranteed to work. We typically rewire each fixture with copper wire of a gauge sized appropriately for any type of light bulb intended for the fixture, including incandescent, CFL, and LED. We include extra-long wires so that you have flexibility in mounting the fixture. And, of course, we test each fixture to make sure it's in perfect working order.*Accurately photographed and described. Check our outstanding feedback and know that these lights are clearly photographed, from all angles, in sharp detail, so you can see exactly what you're buying. Our descriptions are honest, accurate, and detailed. If you require any more photos or information, don't hesitate to contact us and we'll get back to you quickly.*Ready to hang. With each fixture we include everything you need to hang the fixture--you or your electrician need supply only the wire nuts!.*Carefully packaged. We generously pad our light fixtures in accordance with the standards established by our major shippers (FedEx, UPS, and USPS), and use sturdy boxes, often double boxing if necessary. Though these lights have prices assigned to them, in many ways we consider them "priceless" because of their rarity, beauty, and the fact that you simply cannot buy a comparable modern-day replacement -- and we keep that front of mind in thoughtfully packing every fixture. We typically ship within 24 hours of payment. Most light fixtures are slightly disassembled for safe and economical shipping -- an easy reassembly on your end. We combine shipping to save you money when buying more than one fixture.*Guaranteed to please. We can't remember the last time a customer was unhappy, but if you don't like your fixture for any reason, simply return it for a full refund. Quoted shipping is to the lower 48 states.
