    The BIG Lights

    Thank you. Just about ready for a first round of test with the "Big 4K Watt" HMI bulb. So far I've used a 100 watt HMI bulb with impressive results. Still need some refinements on the reflector with future projects, but I think this will work at least as well if not better than the Fiberglas...

    The BIG Lights

    My new Aluminum 36 inch "What-ever", maybe the Aluminum version of the Gorilla or Nighthawk. The telescope reflector version of the 36 inch Gorilla is moving along. Not sure what to call it, Monster Jr., the New Gorilla, etc. Bottom picture you can see the two high powered searchlights...

    The BIG Lights

    Had to put away the giant 72 inch Biggest light, too big for my home. Brought back the 50 inch Monster..! My tribute and a temporary substitute for the 60 inch WWII carbon arc searchlight, for anyone with limited space for storage, (light as seen can hang in closet). This is an excellent...

    The BIG Lights

    60 watt light bulb from across the street. about 1/633th the eventual light output of the searchlight from 600 lumen to 380.000 lumen and beyond. Here is just a 60 watt test bulb for preliminary focus and alignment. 60 watt incandescent bulb = 15 watt CFL 600 lumen. Searchlight will have...

    The BIG Lights

    Currently at 72 inches in diameter and almost the lumen output of the 60 inch Carbon Arc GE or Sperry WWII searchlights makes this 72 inch diameter searchlight the largest diameter searchlight in the World when completed in March 2014...this Spring and certainly very bright, starting with a 4kw...

    The BIG Lights

    I am am honored to have the 50 inch Monster added to the 'BIG Lights' thread. I hope everyone gets as much out of this big light, as the 24 inch scratch built & designed reflector thread did. I have a list of experiments I'll be doing with this light!:thinking::candle::thumbsup::naughty::cool:

    Looking for a large, bright flashlight

    I recently received a 2-"D" battery Husky 4 watt LED tactical flashlight with 200 lumens. It looks about as bright and focused as a one million candlepower searchlight. Easily lights up objects a thousand feet or more away. Looks like a flashlight that would make a lot less light. Has nice...
