Lighted Light Bulb Socket by adamlhumphreys Lighted Light Bulb Socket by adamlhumphreys
The idea for this originated from a dream, though drastically different than what was in my dream. The concept is the same however, miniature bulbs lighting a larger socket like a skirt. I used a CFL base and a round wood cutout to mount the sockets. Six 55 volt bulbs, two sets of 3 wired in series. [link]

Possible practical purpose? ÖI guess if you only have one light bulb in a dark basement or something, youíll be able to see your socket, but donít touch the metal parts. :D

I know from the shape of the bulb installed in the socket that it is an S11 utility bulb.

I have some at 7W and a couple at 40W. :D The other small T3.25 bulbs are 55V.

I got lucky and found some red 7.5W S11 bulbs while I was at Pechin's not too long ago. A mega rare find in a store if you ask me – especially at 89¢ per bulb – I think I might have struck gold!

Cool. ^^ Transparent red or opaque? What base size?

They're opaque red, E26 base (like what a standard house socket can fit). They're made by a Chinese manufacturer for Feit Electric.

I think I know of a few uses for these bulbs, such as a holiday light string (if I get more colors), a beautiful colored chasing marquee light, etc.

I also think I might treat Pechin's as my gold mine for colored S11 bulbs, since I got lucky there once and found those six red S11 bulbs.

Ooo, medium base is awesome. :nod: Though I prefer transparent colors. ^^

A patio stringer! :D

Cool. :)

Yeah, E26 is pretty cool. Transparent colors actually last longer than opaque.

I guess a patio stringer could work, but they were never meant for S11 bulbs. I could try stringing the S11 string onto my tree one year.

Maybe I could find blue and green as well and make a mini RGB box with dimmer control to dim each bulb to get different RGB generated colors!

Out of curiosity, how much would you give for it, or what do you think it’s worth? ^^;
It would be nice to sell some of the bulb projects I do so I can make more! :D
