That one on ebay is kind of pricey..Walmart has the Ucos for $15.88...I think I sold those older candles around here for $5 or so..and that's about it.

The 2 piece stainless shades that are made for them are nice. Reflect all the light downward for better reading light.

Hmm..now that I've taken another look at it..might make a nice project to use a popcan or red bull and ADD the LED light attachment... :mrgreen:
