Hi picked this up at auction but not sure of year or what it is from. My guess is it is a signalling lamp. It is hand held and powered through cigarette lighter plug, although my buses this has been adapted. Any help would be greatly appreciated[/img][/url]

You must insert the URL between these two: [img][/img]

The URL must be public or it will not link to your post.

[img]https://forums.g503.com/download/file.php?id=167342[/img]

That link is not public so we get no photo.

So now I go and load your photo into your album here on our web site at:

And VOILA!

Thank you! I remember it from before that it was easier to post to the album, but I was striking out there too.....can it be done from an apple device?

I’ve uploaded pics from an iPhone but my photos were on the phone.
And the size can’t be over a certain number.

That probably applies to the HD photos the newer phones can take.
They can be huge, as they are a composite of three photos, and this site won’t
accept them.

I have one of those too. Neat little light. I don't think they are worth much. I think they are for sending signals between ships. Although, I guess they would be painted grey if it was a Navy thing.

Hard to tell from one photo, but it could be an Aldis Lamp, also used for air traffic control around airfields to control vehicles around runways and aircraft with no radio.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aviation_light_signals

What kind of power plug is on it? I believe Navy models used for ship-to-ship signals were white light only for flashing Morse code. Shipboard power is very strange stuff.

A key feature of an Aldis Lamp is that it has a mirror in the back end that makes a defined focal distance for the light beam. For airport signals it would have a red and green lens as well as the white (plain light bulb). Some smaller portable models were adapted to vehicle power 12-or-24 volt. I've seen a small decal stuck to the dash on some jeeps in some folks photo albums that show the meaning of the various red-green-white light combinations.

If it is an Aldis Lamp I'd think it'd be pretty rare.

It is a twelve volt with a cigarette lighter on end. Not sure if that was original

I will check with the bulb. At back there is switch and the trigger definitely seems for signalling. Sites at top.

Would the mirror be at back inside the bulb?

The ones I'm familiar with the mirror isn't part of the bulb, it's convex (concave? I get them mixed up), a slightly dished mirror mounted behind the bulb. There's probably many different designs. If it doesn't have a red and green lens it's probably not for airfields. My guess would be just plain Morse code signaling. Especially because of the aiming sight. Interesting piece.

Found my signal light. I looks just like yours but with alligator clips on the wires. The Markings are hard to read (see below). There’s one on eBay for $29.

13 VOLT
GRIMES Q-3160
REF NO. 9910X-S5600-668XX

X are for numbers that I couldn’t read.
