So, I had this helmet laying around & an old lamp. Helmet had no suspension, drilled out copper rivet.

Soft color LED bulb puts out a nice glow.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

Nice job, it's yours to do with as you like. I'm shocked nobody is giving you a hard time for doing that. Give it time. Lol

All I did was remove a rivet & use existing hole. Using LED creates almost no heat to preserve finish.

Does the red line across it mean it failed inspection at some point and was retired?

Yes, at the factories a helmet from each batch was tested with a special .45 bullet. If they failed a hole was punched in the rim and a red stripe painted over the top. They were used for training only.

No harm no foul, honestly I think it looks great nice creation. Somebody would most likely buy something like that, you have actually increased its value!

I guess this one has had a bit more harm done to it ...

I intentionally used the original lamp finial so it didn't have a pickle stabber on top.

Good call, yours looks great!

This was one I saw in an antique mall last fall, it's NOT mine!

I have one similar that works as well. But it is obviously "period" done, what ever "period" that may be judging by the electrical components...
