Thorn Beta 6 Bowls

Postby Slyspark » Wed Mar 09, 2016 4:29 pm

Ok, so, having no luck in finding a replacement bowl for a Thorn Beta 6 lantern (2x40w T12 lantern for 2' lamps) Have just been on the phone with the vacuum formers who could make one, but they're not interested in doing just a one-off. So, need to find a few other people who might also be after one. Please let me know if you have any interest at all in one of these?

Would the bowl from the Australian Stradalux fit? May be worth contacting the guys downunder? Sadly I'm not lucky enough to own a Beta 6 either, let alone a bowl!
I LOVE LAMP!

Alas, the only part of a Beta 6 I own is a canopy. Need a gear tray (which I could make) and a bowl, which I need to either find a replacement for or have one vacuum formed. I have a stradalux on order (a mate in Oz has it sat in his office, only problem is, it's been there 7 months as he's not got around to posting it) but the bowls on those are hinged at one and with a single clip at the other, whereas the Beta 6 has 2 hinges on one side and 2 bowl clips on the other, so wouldn't fit without modification I guess.....
