A lampholder for G9 lightbulbs. Use this to make your own lamps using recycled glass jars, timber and beads.
I use these to hold the LED bulbs into lamps that I design and make. My finished lamps are available for sale from my website or Etsy shop. I share the files for 3d printed parts here to encourage others to conbine their printed parts with recycling.
Look out for an 'instructable' about how to make my lamps...

I get best results from printing with an Ultimaker 2, PLA and the 'Fine' quality setting. For some filaments that are translucent or tend to be brittle, I increase the wall thickness to 1.2 or 1.6.
No. 6 x 25mm self tapping screws work well to fix the lampholder down through the printed holes. The light fitting should fit inside with room to screw it to the lampholder with No. 4 x 16mm self tapping screws.
This prints in 4 hours, for the fine setting, and 7.5 hours if the wall thickness is increased.
