Most of your pump restro suppliers have lighted globe bases that you can mount or sit anywhere. I have gotten a few from Ron Scoobie and Powder coated ones from Vic's. They work great!


Thanks

Heres a platform that I made to elevate the back row of globes on an upper platform. They are all plugged into one device that is wired to a switched outlet. Flip one switch and everything comes on.

The globe bases from some companies are so exoensive. I bought $10 globe bases and secured them to my shelf to hold the globe. I bought puck lights made by utilitech from Lowes that give an incandescent glow. I can light 3 globes for $60, and it looks great. One base from Vics will run you that much.

Avoid the white LED lights, the color is too white. You can use LED, but make sure its an incandescent color.

Here is how I display my globes. Pretty much a shelf around the perimeter of my office with globe bases and lights like in Kevins picture.

This was planned and layed out and pre-wired before the drywall went up. I made the wall sconces.
