wire hook mount for carbide lamp?

Postby hoosiercaver1 » Jan 13, 2008 7:12 pm

what is the best mount made for wire hook lamps made (or homemade)? The only one ive found is on inner mountain. Anyone know of a better one?

if your carbide still has a hook on it, you're most likely going to need to buy a flat blade and have it put on the back of the lamp.
that said, the "rockfarer" mount on inner mountain outfitters is what we all use, and it works well.

What type of lamp do you have? I've got some experience soldering blades onto lamps with good results. I'm up in Kokomo. I'd be willing to work on it for you if you'd like... Shoot me a message :carbide: :cavingrocks:

Thanks for the advice guys. It was a lot easier to switch out than i thought. Now the lamp will be much more stable.
