In post #128 the second light is mine. I used one of those spiral light bulbs, it is a green party light. I believe DDIL is using green LEDs in their light.

We used green super-bright LED's. We have 12 in the base and 6 in each ear. They are mounted to plastic discs (think plastic kitty litter jug) and hot glued onto the base of each globe. It's really not as bright as I thought it would be when compared to FIL's light, but that's ok, we don't really want it to see by. I just wanted the ears to be lit up too.

Where would I find the led's in green....I really like the even light distribution form the L.E.D.s, I think I'd like to use them also.

That is an intriguing solution, I'll have to look into it. I would like to get more light into the ears as well and using LEDs would solve the problem of having to replace a bulb. I'm also going to try to find a way to move the CFL higher into the head. HD has an expandable, 6"-14", 1 1/4 adaptor but they want something like $15 for it. I don't think so. Maybe a paper towel tube instead.

These might work




I saw them on the internet from these guys

You should be able to get them from any aquarium shop.
You could install them so the tips are in the ears and the base is in the head.

Just read the first line of my signature.

Really I've been thinking about making one and trying to figure out how to do it. I was replacing an exit sign today which uses similar lamps and it hit me like a ton of bricks. You even have a choice of colors.

It's funny about the color changing light. I was at Lowes picking up the other supplies I needed for the lamp(I had ordered the globes online). I was wandering through the lighting section and they had one of the bulbs in a display lamp. It was at that point I decided that I needed the color changing bulb.

Maybe it would be brighter if I use a 100 watt incandescent bulb instead of the smaller CFL. My globe is also bigger so the light has farther to travel to the ears. I'll have to play with it. I like BDR's suggestion though I wonder if the wires would stick out when illuminated from inside. It might be time for another trip to HD, quickly becoming a second home.
I have the same kind of "head" globe. 12" in diameter, but no lip or anything. I can't find anything big enough to use as a base to attach it to the pole. What did you use and where did you find it?

Take a look back at post #119 on page 8. I think I used a 16" globe for the head but I haven't measured it. I know the ears are 8", according to the sticker. Everything was found at Home Depot. The problem I have to find a solution for is the light sits too low in the base. I need to move it up higher to get more light in the ears. There have been a couple of suggestions made but I haven't had time to work on it lately.

The hole in my 12" globe is 5 1/4" in diameter, so the 4" coupler is not big enough, hence my problem. Anyone have any suggestions?
