The single, or half, version of this form (LB-5) is used for wall sconces, and the double, or whole, version (LB-10) is used for torches and lamp bases. Before using it as a lamp base form, you must cement the two halves together with your own personal clear silicone glue. The widest dimension at the shoulder is about 9-1/2", and it is about 15" high.
The instructions for wiring a Bradley Base calls for a list of parts including various sockets, nuts, washers and things which a person might acquire by scurrying around on a Saturday afternoon in a large city. If you would prefer to do something else on a Saturday afternoon, all of this stuff is available (with the exception of the brass base and the vented cap) in one handy package which you can buy from us at the time you buy everything else. The kit has easy to follow step-by-step instructions in it.
$17.71, 6 for $95.64, 12 for $170.04
This 2-7/8" diameter cap is recommended for use on the top of the lamp base to allow the heat generated by the light bulb to escape. Even though the wattage of the bulb is low, a ventilated cap will keep things cooler and lengthen the life of the bulb. Solid cast brass, polished to a mirror finish.
$2.77, 12 for $29.88, 24 for $53.28
These pieces are sold separately from the wiring kit because there are several different models to choose from. The ones shown below have a 4" diameter top opening. More base bottoms will be added to our website very soon, including a variety of faux wood base bottoms.
