Vintage Pillar Drill Lamp

£210 Item #0278

This is a beautifully converted table or desk lamp, made from an old hand cranked pillar drill.

The drill press has been carefully cleaned and given a heat treatment and protective coating of 100% natural beeswax which gives it a beautiful warm sheen and prevents rust and corrosion. The little accents of red paint have been left as they create beautiful natural highlights.

The lamp is supplied with a perforated steel industrial style shade (although any standard lamp shade can be fitted or it could be displayed without a shade). It is fitted with a standard E27 screw in bulb holder and also comes with a 60 watt Edison Filament bulb. The long mains cable has a retro style in line switch built in.

This item would be a lovely gift for any engineer, wood working enthusiast or lover of old tools and machinery and would be a great talking point either in the home, office, restaurant or bar.

This and my other items made from reclaimed or salvage components will have been cleaned and subjected to a range of finishing treatments, all of these items will display imperfections and show signs of their history through the odd scratch or dent picked up with wear and handling over the years. This is what gives these items their charm and warmth and makes each one truly unique, it is not a fault, it is an enhancement and is what has lead to the creation of the finished item.

The electrical conversion has been carried out by a qualified electrical engineer and this lamp comes complete with a current portable appliance test (PAT) certificate for your safety and peace of mind.

All electrical items carry a two month guarantee and faulty items can be sent back for repairs. You will be responsible for posting the item back to me but I will repair and return it free of charge. Please do not attempt repairs or to disassemble items yourself, this can be dangerous and may lead to further problems possibly resulting in the item being non-repairable. Bulbs, where included, are tested before shipping and are not returnable. Please contact me BEFORE returning any items. This item is wired for UK use with a standard three pin mains plug is fitted but this could be easily changed to any international standard.
