Repurposed Vintage Simplex Timeclock & Flashlight LampDecember 3rd, 2013 in member junk
I had been wanting to use this vintage Simplex timeclock for a while now. I was pretty set on making it a repurposed lamp and that's the direction I headed. I also had been holding onto the vintage copper flashlight. I used it as my stem and a couple of unique hand valves top things off for the edison-style lightbulb. For the base, I cut some wood from some scraps and gave it a nice red paint, distressing and wax. I'll finish things with some sort of shade but I like the edison glow for now.
