Does it count as a lamp if it hangs from the ceiling?

    I bought 4 model 27 Coleman hollow wire lights on ebay-- I decide instead of restoring and selling them I was going to plumb my shop and use them for heat during winter---

    I did a test today after I found ( or made) all the fittings needed to plumb them-- this was just a test fire ! I love it !

    Very nice, Bruce! :thumbup:

    In my opinion they do qualify as lamps; and fine lamps at that.

    Cheers

    What else could they be if they're not lamps?
