    Not too bad for $100 ;-)

    Dominion Auto beacon, NASignal 60 inch crossbar, and a Signal Stat bar with intact end caps. All saved from an auto salvage yard in Dickinson. The Signal Stat bar is gonna need a bit of TLC (driver's side runs quick, passenger side runs a tad slower), but the Dominion beacon runs like a champ! A...

    Manairco Airport Beacon (Custom designed Mark 12 from Tripp Lite)

    Seen this on eBay and though it was a unique re-branded beacon to share. Price is definitely steep for the condition it's in though. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&toolid=10001&campid=5338077216&icep_item=372603394161

    Think my Pyramid Power supply just ruined a Jetsonic.

    So, I was doing a final check of the Jetsonic Series B I picked up from Rugby earlier this week. I hooked power and ground up correctly and applied the rotator trigger wire to power. All went great, until I removed the trigger wire. The motor sped up and the rotators did not go back to home...

    First haul of 2018 :-)

    Not bad for $200! All bought from the Rugby VFD ^_^ ! The guy I met with who's on the department said some of the crew said to just chuck 'em in the dumpster. Thank God the other guys had a better idea! Whew! Bullet dodged! They will all be gone through, restored, and will probably go up for...

    Rare Federal Siren Console on the Bay: PA151

    It's like the Federal Director version of the PA150 with no HI/LO, hardwired mic. I'm sure these aren't seen often! https://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-FEDERAL-SIGNAL-PA-151-CONTROLLER-SWITCH-CONTROL-BOX-WITH-MICROPHONE/263539683378?hash=item3d5c307032:g:DMgAAOSwaAxamRxb

    Code 3 XL9000 Lightbar

    Had this lightbar in my collection for about 5 years. Time to let go since 1. I've got a 48" Code 3 XL sealed beam in the collection customized with Stingers and colored bulbs and 2. I needed to make room for my CST1S TwinSonic and Model 25 AeroDynic. It doesn't hold a real strong spot in my...

    Federal Signal 12X TwinSonic

    Bought this bar last September. Full cleaning and restoration was done. No mounting kit comes with, only the bar. Original 4464 60W bulbs in rotators. Great for a beginner collector or project. Asking $125 plus shipping. Thanks for looking! Shortly after all internals were cleaned: As...

    CTS Project for a Friend

    So, as many of y'all know by now, I picked up a Federal Signal CTS1S as my first Cal-Spec lightbar and shared about its resto. But, that's not the first CTS I did work on in my years of collecting and restoring. I didn't get around posting about this bar for a long while, but now that it's...

    Is it worth trying to snag this or not? UPDATE: I did :D

    So, I never thought I'd see an ad for one of these up here in the frozen North... https://www.bismanonline.com/1970_s_vintage_police_light_bar/?app_track=suggested_from_adview But.......this guy did his research and is asking market value pretty much. I'd offer a cash/trade: $300 along with...

    Finally obtained one of these for myself :-D

    As mentioned in this thread here (https://elightbars.org/forums/threads/whelen-centurion-custom-restoration.83690/), I retired this Federal Signal Model 25 from service to be part of my collection for the rest of its existence. I'm pretty happy how these things work out! The crazy part is is...

    Federal Model CJ184 restoration for in-field use

    This beacon was done for the Fire Academy of ND. This will be going on a service vehicle in the near future. It needed a lot of help, but I got it to where it's ready to serve once again. Upon arrival at home: It had seen better days, but the skirt was in good shape and the badge was not...

    Whelen Centurion Custom Restoration

    Hey, all! Hope your day is going fantastic B-) Figured I share a project that I put together for a wrecker that's being put together by the Fire Academy. It's going to replace a lightbar that I'll share here once the change-over is done ;-) In late September, I bought this Whelen Centurion...

    Couple of recent projects for September.

    Well, I figured I'd share for the heck of it. Gotta do this more often, ya know ;) .

He allowed me to have first dibs on it if...

    Working Beacon Displays

    This idea came about from a good friend of our family who's a big car buff. I had made a Tripp Lite cross bar into a working display for his shop to show off to his guests and he suggested that I take my hobby and turn it into something that I could sell. So, he told me of a guy down in Mandan...

    Visit to State Surplus = Sweet Score

    On Tuesday, I stopped into our state's surplus hub to see if they had any new emergency equipment come in. I saw these dudes sitting on a pallet and well, it was a no-brainer :D. The most awesome part? All three for $15. Makes me feel good to get $1,500 worth of siren speaker for a helluva deal...
