Bakelite electrical plugs
« on: December 30, 2013, 11:37:46 AM »
I am rehabbing a few old lamps and fans and i am down to my last bakelite plug end.

i have managed to find new cloth covered cord in a local hardware store but i cant find the bakelite plug ends...

the plug ends will have to be in vcg as i am not looking to create a fire hazard in my home.

here is a link to a few cool pics of a guy who is taking it to the next level...
i am not nearly this amazing, but he has several of the plug ends pictured.

I'm most intrigued by the large piston!
