    Can you identify these Sirens?

    The one on the right has a tag that comes down to a point. I have seen those before but just can't place it. Not sure about the one on the right, maybe a Sterling?

    McDermott Whatchamacallit.

    Anyone have any idea what this is and was used for? I found it today. There seems to be a problem with an electrical board inside. I think I can fix it, if I know what it is suppose to do. Lol

    Trail-Brite Chief

    I bought this today on marketplace pretty cheap. It's a NOS, in the box Trail-Brite Chief Teardrop. It's friction drive and it has the same Chief emblem as Tuff-Bilt. The box says made in Hong Kong as was TB. Correct me if I am wrong, but wasn't Tuff-Bilt rebranded Dietz? I found a...

    Wanted Tripp LIte T-527 Dome Red or Clear

    Looking for a T-527 dome to fit a Tripp-LIte Mark V1. Prefer Red or Clear. Doesn't have to be new, just no cracks or crazing, I don't mind wet sanding and refinishing.

    Half MIle Ray

    I picked up this little spot light yesterday. the Half Mile Ray No. 1075, manufactured by the Portable Light company, which was part of Sireno. It's a pretty cool light in really good condition. I put an 1156 bulb in it and it works just fine. This is suppose to e a 7.5 volt battery operated...

    Possibly Speed Up Your Junior Beacon

    I had a someone send me a Junior motor that was not working and I was able to get it back up and running. At first it was running very slow. Turns out the spring that presses the brushes against the commutator, which is exposed, was weak. Fabricating a new spring for the brushes put the motor...

    Find of the day Federal EG 1958?

    Found this little item sitting on a shelf in one of my favorite antique shops. Federal Sign and Signal EG in 12V. The Serial is: 2L12E8. I believe this means it was made in May 1958. Interesting that the tag still says "Formerly Federal Electric Company. I wonder how long that appeared on...

    Not Vintage But Collectable. Cat 394

    It is a rotator, one of the few still being made I suppose. It's a Cat Series 394 made for Caterpillar. Nice light that came NIB for a good price so I thought I would add it to the collection. Nice, very bright light with magnetic mount.

    Recognize this assembly?

    Can anyone tell me what gearbox and motor came off of? It's a belt driven light, so I am thinking Trippe maybe?

    Federal Model 28-S Siren Display

    I finally got around to building my display stand for my Federal Model 28-S Siren. It has a chrome push button for activating but it blends into the diamond plate so well in the pic you can't see it. It has an unusual serial number 2A14B6206. Looks like Feb. 1962 for a manufactured date...

    Napa 488 Question

    Is there something special about a Napa 488 beacon? I saw one today in a shop and they were asking $485 for it. Looked online to see if I could show them the real value and there are two on Ebay right now for $275 each. They are just Dietz 7-40 rebrand if I remember right.

    NOS Sireno SearchLights

    I just purchased this NOS Sireno Searchlight, that is new in the box. Looks like it's about 1978 or so. If anyone is interested I can get my hands on two more for $150 each, let me know ASAP.

    That's not a real light....

    Note sure if I will get a "Cool !" response or told to delete it. Lol.. I found this Swiss Beacon labeled by Swiss Harmony Co., Chicago. These were made in the 1960's as attention getters for businesses. They spin and have 4 colored glass lens. Blue, Red, Yellow and Green. They have since...

    It was a Tripp-Lite kinda day.

    Ran up on two lights yesterday at two different location and both were Tripp-Lite beacons. The first is a Tripp=Lite MV2, the Batman light, only in amber. Looks like it should actually be labled MV2M, as it is a throw light with magnet and tang for securing. Needs a good cleaning and the dome...

    NOS Grote 361-1

    Anyone have any information on this Grote 361-1 light? There is no date stamping or SAE number. It appears NOS without even a scratch on it. It has the same bulb used in a Federal Fireball. The dome is glass and is marked "No. 10, Cat's Eye, Made In The USA". I think it was made by...

    Vitalite on Engine.

    The wife and I were passing through a small town in Georgia and I saw this old engine sitting in front of their fire station. The rear lights caught my attention and we turned around to take a look. First time I have seen Vitalites in actual use on something.

    Another Whatzit ?

    Picked this up for the motor. Looks like a Twinsonic mount, but the wiring and setup is different than what I have seen. There appears to be a switch that activates by the rotation of of the gears, would have to connect to a light. Is it a type of flasher? There also appear to be a resistor...

    What do these fit?

    Anyone know what these will fit? I believe they are rear lenses for vintage mechanical sirens. They are just like the ones on my Sireno R5R except they are 1/8" larger. The Sireno takes a 4 to 4-1/8" base and this is 4-1/4" It's a great looking lens if I can find out what it fits. I have two...

    NOS Teardrop

    Found this little guy in a small antique shop the wife and I visit occasionally. SAE date of W3-79. I am curious as to when these were made as every TB 7-07 I have ever seen has a W3-79 on it. Never seen an earlier date or later date. I know these are rebranded Deitz and they are very...

    And Now For Something Completely Different.

    Title for my Monty Python fans. Picked this up not because it's a road barrier light but because it is a Dietz and has a nice Dietz tag on it. Dietz Visi-Flash. Uses 2 6 volt Spring Terminal batteries.

    New Sireno

    Picked up another Sireno for my Sireno collection. This is is a No. 2 Motorcycle siren. Made around 1924 it's small with a 4" fan, but was considered one of the big ones in it's day. Just a few more years and the 5-1/2" sirens would come out. It works great and has a classic sound.

    Stratolite 80 Domes

    I have a Signal Stat 374 beacon build date of August 1977. It had a Stratolite 80 dome on it when I got it and it has a small crack across the top. Displays well, but...well you know.. So I bought a brand new Stratolite 80 dome this week and it arrived today. It will not fit on this light...
