    Hi My home was built in the 70s. There are three halogen can lights in the dining room. The lights are 50w and they get SUPER hot. I removed the lights and clipped the two wires so I could rewire to a pendant light. The first one had a little bit of power but then it went away. The other two...

It's the first stage of the 3-way so I'm good there. I got all the wiring correct, doing it the same as in...

    Hello, I want to make a bright lamp with a glass coca cola bottle. I have a 50 watt 12v Halogen Tungsten Bulb, some wiring, a switch and 12v batteries. I've been told that Halogen bulbs generate a lot of heat and emits UV rays, so this is not such a good idea. Does anyone have any...

    I installed the halogen track lighting a few months ago and it worked fine except a couple of bulbs went out. I replaced them with 50W instead of the recommended 20W max. So I had 160W going on a track that was supposed to have 150W max. That worked OK for a few weeks, then the whole thing went...

    Hey all, I've searched to the ends of the internet and haven't truly found concise input on how to go about doing this. (Leads me to believe that I should give up.) I'm hoping someone can guide me in a good direction. Thanks! I would like to construct some "efficient", reliable and low temp...
