Carbon Arc Searchlight
I started this site because I restored a General Electric Searchlight to it's original World War II glory. During my search for a good specimen to restore, I had talked with many searchlight owner/operators coast to coast, and have discovered the many problems they are up against in maintaining these aging machines. Finding parts, the high cost of maintenance is a big problem. Sadly, I have seen many searchlight graveyards because of these problems.
I hope this web site will unite searchlight owners in some way to help each other keep our great lights running for years to come through an exchange of knowledge and information on this site. Please email me with any ideas you might have.
Let me know if there are parts you are looking
or if you have parts for sale. I will post your company on this
if you wish in the operator section, and if you have a web site,
I will provide a link to your website as well. All suggestions are
Please email me, Bob Meza, here with any comments, questions
Keep your lights from ending up in the bone yard
