SOLD

I'm putting my Baby up for sale. It's time to move on to other things in life. Sales Price is $21,000. Sale price is now $15,000. Read all about it here:

I paid $20,000 for the light, genset and trailer. I've since purchased a $1,500 new-old stock electric control box that controls all the rod feed mechanisms. I have $1,600 worth of original 1940/1950's National Carbon rods unopened in their sawdust-filled tin cans. The engine has been completely tuned up and runs perfectly. It will idle smoothly at 300 RPM! If you've ever thought of owning one of these historic pieces, this is the one to own. The mirror - which is critical to light output, is an "8" on the "10" scale - almost impossible to find! This is the second-best - originally configured (separate light and genset on their original dollies) light rig in the world - I kid you not. The BEST light belongs to the other "Bob" and will be donated to a museum when he tires of it. And of course, I'd enjoy training you how to operate it and on how it works. The unit weighs around 8,500 pounds.

PM me for my phone number if you want more info.

I would be willing to deliver it for the cost of fuel pending the distance from Burbank, CA. (Within 100 miles would be free)

Now that is a Light! LEDs step aside! I'm tempted to request for beam shot pics! Ok...obviously I'm not buying but I would think most people here would like to see some pics of this working at night.

There are some very good beam shots by JetskiMark on the first page of the linked thread. And, of course, my avatar

That thing is beyond cool, but besides grand openings or movie premieres, what did you use it for exactly?

Most of my jobs were for night clubs, midnight madness new car sales, openings of new restaurants and a few Christmas live nativity drive-thru's.

Is it brighter than my Dorcy 1AAA LED light? Mine's gen. 2, with the optic, so it might be close...:whistle:

WOW! Are there any legal issues with using that, or are you free to just blast away at the night sky?
