Come great lights today, we're a supersize this baby and put it on the wall balls to the walls. So we bought this industrial lamp off carousel a couple months back and absolutely loved it. Since we're already renovating the office. We wanted to have a massive version of this as the backdrop of one of our sets after surfing online for hours and not finding one with the right size or design for this surface, we decided to get our hands dirty and make one ourselves: let's get cracking.
Let's get cracking , first and foremost, it is always good to sketch out your design just to get a general idea of what it will look like. You should then break it down to figure out the lengths of the individual types, as well as the types of fittings required. Next pick up the parts according to your schematics for our design, we went for half-inch GI pipes and the blocks at our hardware store, even helped us cut and thread the pipes. According to our specifications, oh yeah make sure that you grab fittings of the right size. According to your pipes, after that, let the cleaning commence chain sounds like Hunger Games start off by rubbing your pipes with some paint thinner to get rid of any excess, threading oil or grease Alain was very happy to do all the dirty work.
Since I was working the camera, you should also soak your fittings before giving them a good scrub with a wire brush. This will remove any rust that may have formed why the fittings were sitting on the shelves now, let's put them all together since the cutting and threading process isn't actually a hundred percent accurate. Make sure that you take that into consideration and leave some tolerances in your measurements. It is a good idea to have a can of wd-40 handy just to help work, some of the joints that just won't birch our light fixture was quite large, so it took us about three hours to fully assemble the whole thing your mileage may vary.
You don't need to take it all apart before you start wiring, so this is a good chance for you to replace any pipes of fittings that just won't fit in .Moving on to the wiring. Now I'm no certified electrician. So please take my instructions with a grain of salt or more, like a ton of salt, roughly measure the lengths of the cables before passing them through your pipes and fittings. According to the position of your light, sockets, here's one of our ghetto solutions to navigating a tea fitting you're welcome. Next, you need to connect your sockets to the wires start off by removing the black sleeve.
We used a pair of scissors but feel free to use wire strippers. If you have them do the same with the hot and neutral wires ours with blue and brown, but you may get them in other color combinations such as black and white. It really doesn't matter, then connect a brown or hot wire to the hot contact and a blue or neutral wire to the neutral terminal, with the wiring done it's time to prep your light fixture for painting. We used electrical tape to cover all the sockets and brass accessories, but feel free to use painters tape if you have any go grab your spray-paint safety, goggles and masks and you're set remember to give you can a good shake before you get to work.
