    Can you identify these Sirens?

    I picked them up today. The one on the right is a Federal Electric Type W (not model) It doesn't appear to have had the vents on the side, there are no holes where screws would have been. The other one, to my surprise is a Person's Majestic, which is a really cool and effective Siren. More...

    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

    What was your first?

    This is the first vehicle I ever drove, a 1980 Chevy Nova with a Federal Visibar. The first rig I was assigned to is this van with the twin Fireballs on the fender and the Federal 184 on the roof.

    Is eLightbars dying out?

    I will be honest. I loved this site until the last updates that lost all of the work and images we had compiled into great forums and information. I held out hope that would be remedied but it has not. I don't have the desire to build anymore or share a lot on here anymore expecting it to...

    The Trail-Brite 7-07 Unboxing

    Probably means Yankee was manufactured by two different companies. I would imagine that all of these other brands were actually made by Signal Stat?

    The Trail-Brite 7-07 Unboxing

    Yankee did sell this light as an 1166 Found this on another site

    The Trail-Brite 7-07 Unboxing

    I can vouch for the Tuff-Bilt and Dietz as 7-07 and of course the Trail Brite. Yankee and Star was/is the 1166, but I wonder if they are the same light.

    Beacon identification and questions

    The model is a military version of the Federal 100 which is the modem version of the 14. Different motor (newer) and gearing from the model 14. 28 volts means just that.

    Anatomy and Restore of a 184 Power Light.

    Interesting update on this A2 Series 184. Another one has been discovered and it is 12V. It was originally thought that perhaps the A2 designation was for the early 6v, but apparently that is not the case. The A2 12v is identical to the 6v. The only differences between the A2 and A3 is the...

    Trail-Brite Chief

    I made a memory error. The zip tie was in testing. After I saw position of the bulb made the difference I bent the post to accomplish the same effect. It's been a while. #ejwa

    Trail-Brite Chief

    It hasn't so far but I only run these for a few minutes at a time. A twist of actual wire would be best.

    Trail-Brite Chief

    Slip the bulb out of its slot and drop it down until the filament sits shows center of the reflector. Then wire tie the bulb in place.

    Trying to identify a light/beacon from my childhood...

    Sounds like a Smith & Wesson to me. Mine is missing the sticker tag.

    Trail-Brite Chief

    I did receive the Trail Brite light and will make some pictures when I get time. It has a TB-77-707 dome. The band says model 7-07 with the W3-79 as expected.

    Trail-Brite Chief

    The lights (SS 333A) are actually really good lights and quite effective........ IF..... You recenter the bulb. I have two of these I keep in my vehicles for roadside emergencies. The bulb was set high so the light reflected down. I removed the bulb from it's position, dropped and re-centered...

    Trail-Brite Chief

    This is the Signal Stat 333A, it's a lot bigger than a Fireball or TB. No real markings on it.

    Trail-Brite Chief

    I think the Signal Stat 333A goes in group 1 also.

    You mean none prior to 79 for TB lights?

    Trail-Brite Chief

    Is there a timeline for Tuff Bilt and Trail Brite? I have two TB and they are both W3-79. That's a nice Tuff Bilt 7-07. I have two TB and they both have the W3-79 code on them. I don't think there are any other dates on them. I suspect they were made for only a few years under the TB name...
