    I'm looking to replace these Kim 120V Path lights with something similar. I would like to stick with a 120V solution rather than convert all of them over to 12V. I would also prefer to go to a brass product if possible as these are in an exposed, sea-side location. Lets see what you all come up with! 2019-12-03 11.37.57.jpg 2019-12-03 11.38.29.jpg

    Hmmm. Very interesting. Although intended for line voltage, it looks to me that with a socket converter it could be used with 12v LED lamps and power.

    Yes, I was referring to the 40" brass bollard. Looks like there would be a commercial usage.

    There's all sorts of brass Aurora Light options. Thought you were an Aurora Light guy

    Aurora makes great lights. Not every project can absorb paying several thousands more for the fixtures needed and waiting many weeks for them to be custom built. Especially when there are other options that are solid brass, lifetime warranty, UL/cUL listed, in stock for same day delivery at 1/3 the price.

    Thanks for the bollard suggestion. It looks nice but would have required a lot of reworking of the 120V supply circuits, junction boxes and mountings. In the end, I found that KIM is still making the Bell path light, and now in brass with either a natural or verde finish. There was no room in the budget for Auroralight.

    That old light looks like a shop class project gone rogue. Sometimes you have to beat some sense into customers.
