Let there be light

Finally getting around to cleaning up some artifacts from this season… so here are a couple quick shots of the cleanup progress of one of the cage lamps I got off the India Arrow earlier this season. It came out pretty nice and when I get time I’ll probably put a new light fixture in and restore it to working order. This particular lamp had a hook so it was actually a work lamp rather than a fixed lamp for lighting (makes sense since I found it in the engine room).


The lamp actually comes apart into 3 pieces…

The base
The cage
The globe
Put them all together and voila…


  1. How did you restore this? Is there a method for removing rust from iron versus brass?
