    Can you say liability? If you make your own homemade fixtures and somebody gets hurt, you are done!! You could spend the money to have your product UL tested and listed though.

    I have heard a lot of people thinking of making their own. What is to a well light?? you are not making the socket, since there is no socket. You are just making the casing.... I breaks down to about 15 per each one and send me a message if you want the know where to get the part that holds the bulb.

    I missed this thread while on vacation.

    It depends on your needs. Are you doing enough to justify your own line like Gambino? or are you just trying to pinch pennies.

    I really dont see the point. Use something tested and approved and charge accordingly.
