    Yard Sale Find

    Stopped at a small group yard sale today and picked up this Sireno R6 for $10. Someone has cut the power wire, but left enough to splice a new one. It's a bit rusty inside but with a little cleaning and polish it will sing again. The serial number is 62379 placing it about 1949. The R6 should...

    Dash Laser question

    Can anyone tell me what this is and what the purpose of it is for the motor? I am putting a new motor in my Dash Laser and it does not have this. There was not one on the motor I removed either, but there is no ground wire for the motor and it will not run without one.

    New Siren, Federal 28?

    I just found this sitting on the floor in an antiques shop I frequent. Practically stole it for the price. Great thing is it works just fine! Comparing to my other M28 (on the display stand) It is a bit different. For one the motor is a lot bigger in diameter. It's about 4-1/2" in diameter...

    Lights Too Bright

    I believe modern LED lights are to bright and blinding to oncoming traffic. We have all been blinded passing a rig on the side of the road at night. This puts not only cars passing at risk but personnel on the scene having blind drivers pass by. You can't see that door open or that person...

    Person's Majestic Siren

    I recently added a fairly rare, Person's Majestic Siren to my collection. Estimated time period is 1920's to 1930's. The housing was cracked in several places and I was able to somewhat repair and stabilize them with soldering. I still need to remove the Projector and clean iit. It's actually...

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
