does anyone know of a company that has a light mounting kit for sale. What I am looking for is a set of nipple runs 1\8" 1\4" and 3\8". then some hickeys and fixture bars, and bushings and maybe some deep canopies. Basically a nice set to install lights in some of these 100 plus year old homes that I am constantly in.
thanks

One of the lighting stores in my area gives out packs just like you described. They call them builder kits. They don't charge for them, they know that many fixtures will need a different bracket or might be missing parts, so they head off the problem before it happens. You might ask a lighting store in your area if they do the same.

There used to be a company called Renovator's Supply, or Renovator's Resource, something along those lines, that sold replica parts for the classic older homes, even up to the Bungalow style of the 40's. They had a fair amount of electrical parts for "luminaires" along with push button switches, ornate covers and such. I don't know if they're still around, though.

Stay away from the "Box" stores... the one by me had a six pack of 3/8 nipples I tried to use one time. They didn't quite fit...

Then I remembered the reason I bought my Klein 6-in-1 tap tool, and looked at the back of the package.

There, in black ink: Made in China

Nothin' against 'em, but "Chinese Standard Thread" doesn't fit our version all the time.

Me too scott! With a title like that, I was expecting a story about changing the pink lights in one of those bars with poles on the stage.

Nov, check at a supply house that has a lighting dept. Angelo Products made a nice kit I purchased at a local supply house awhile back. It came in a case you could keep in your truck with all sorts of fixture parts. It worked well for me in old homes.
