    The glass domes from the old coffee percolators can be made to work.

    You are correct, I did that about 1967. Time fly's when your having fun.:p

  10. When you finally find a lens, get rid of the spring retainer, if it hasn't rusted away already. I use a rubber o-ring to secure the lens. I don't know where you live in Connecicut, but when I lived there I went to a commercial rubber / o-ring supplier in Newington, off of the berlin turnpike. And he had what you need in stock for about $ .50 each.

    I had to buy a set of BLC 904a headlights to get a chipped lens to replace the missing one on my avatar. I also bought 2 different types of clear acrylic rods to try and turn some out on my lathe. Will see how that goes.

    I also replaced the rusty, then missing, springs in mine with o-rings. Looked for some at Ace Hardware but didn't find any the right size until I got back in my pickup and remembered I had bought some garden hose o-ring gaskets and as it turns out they were the perfect size. I like o-rings for garden hoses much better than flat gaskets.

    I had to Google these lamps to see what they resembled, 'Percolator' headlamps. I never knew they existed until now.

    @RICH B do you sell those to those like Mark who might very much like to take you up on such an offer as in the case of those Guides why F' with perfection...;)

    You should make some for sale! Maybe you already do? I might be interested. Surely others would be too as many requests as I have seen for them.
