Yes, you can put light bulb in anything and call it a lamp.




I discovered this by clicking 'see other items'

"low voltage bulbs for safety" Haha, you mean you found 4 old brake lamps that still worked.

Looking at his feedback and sold listings, he doesn't seem to have sold any of his lamps, just other stuff which is still useful.

60W power supply driving 60W +/- 20% bulbs, that's cutting it a bit too fine, the 5A cable should be protected by a 5A fuse as well unless there a certified 5A current limit on the power supply.

Make-to-sell things like that are a heck of a risk, if a fire occurs I bet he hasn't got liability insurance to cover it.

The only things he's sold are things he hasn't modified.

'Upcycled' : Verb, meaning to find something in a skip that is worn out and/or nasty. Repurpose it to a role it does not fulfil well and sell it for an unfeasibly high price to an impressionable person of limited taste and intellect with disposable income

I've designed this upcycled lamp based on an iconic NHS artefact.
A celebrations of its voluptuous form with a tinkling nostalgia for effervescent evenings in its warm moist glow £500.00......or is that just taking the P
