"It’s perhaps very geeky, but I follow a lot of YouTube stuff about electronics.  I found out about the ‘weird’ way you do split phase in ‘technology connections’.  :-)"

"And with the way our beloved counterparts across the pond love to run everything at twice the voltage needed would not be a pretty shituation to have a altercation with a high voltage fun toy!  Good luck bro, keep us up to date!"

"Be absolutely certain that there is no way that homemade foil reflector can make contact with the threaded part of the bulb, as  that is connected to one side of the electrical supply. If the foil does touch the bulb's screw thread and the…"

"Have to agree with Mark, you have just created a Poor Man's Reflector Bulb!  The proper bulb in there will have the same effect. The reflector not only directs light/ heat up towards the globe but also reduces the heat from around the base…"

"Akin to what was said, I don't know if I would use a glass mirror per say, but a plastic mirror would be easier to use and give you some options to curve or cut and be far less heavy."

"I saw one like this in person and it was neat but cheap looking at the same time.  The mirror was actually flexible plastic and instead of being a solid 90 degree sharp angle it was curved.  I think the effect with actual mirrors at a…"

Display using mirrors

I've seen plenty of shelves, and that really cool 30 lamp shelf unit thing, but I'm wondering if anyone has ever displayed lamps in shelf pockets with mirrors behind?  I'm thinking two mirrors at 90 degrees with the joining corner directly behind the lamp, should end up being somewhat of a kaleidoscope effect.See More
