With the weather forecast for the weekend and next week to include showers and clouds you may be wondering what DIY jobs you can undertake without getting wet!

Indoor lighting can be neglected during the summer months when it is not needed as much as the winter which makes it an ideal time to refurbish, repair and renew.

If you have antique and vintage chandeliers that require spares such as chandelier crystals, bobeche, chandelier arms, centre stems etc why not visit our parent company where they are one of the largest UK stockists and antique and vintage chandelier parts and accessories.

Their video tutorial pages and blog give valuable advice for restoring chandeliers

For modern lighting accessories and lighting components then is the place to go - no minimum order value, good customer service and speedy delivery,-ceiling-plate-hooks/

Don't forget some of the items that we sell are dual purpose, for example an engineer purchased some of our "S" hooks for a project he was working on which involved a submarine refurbishment!

Light bulbs were purchased for a incubator for baby chicks whilst other components and our 1.5mm electrical cable have been purchased for the refurbishment of vintage hoovers and heaters.,-nuts-,-bolts-and-threads/

Which bulb for which lamp holder

Sometimes it can be a little frustrating trying to make sure you choose the right lamp holder or light bulb for your lighting project so here is just a quick reminder of the types we sell on our website

SBC B15 - this is the Small Bayonet Cap (SBC) lamp holder which goes with the small B15 light bulb (the bayonet cap bulb is the push in bulb)

BC B22 - this is the Bayonet Cap (BC) lamp holder that accompanies the B22 light bulb -  larger in size than the B15 bulb

SES E14 - Small Edison Screw (SES) lamp holder to accompany the SES E14 light bulb (the edison screw bulb is a screw in bulb)

ES E27 - Edison Screw (ES) lamp holder accompanies the larger E27 bulb

We also stock E12 and E26 lamp holders but these are generally, in lighting, used for lighting to be used in the US

The e-commerce site compliments our Lamp and Light restoration department, hence the company name!

Candle tubes, candle sleeves, candle covers

At Light-Fix we cover all sorts of lighting projects including chandelier restoration and know that sometimes looking for parts for your chandelier can be daunting as either you are uncertain what the part is called so cannot begin an effective search or each site you visit refers to them by different names.

On the Light-Fix website we endeavour to refer to as many terminology's as possible;  one of the common parts with various names is the candle tube.

This part is to cover the lamp holder, hiding it from view and gives the illusion of a candle, imitating the style of candle chandeliers.

Some of the most common names are shown below:-

candle tube, candle sleeve, candle cover, candle covers, candle sleeves, candle tubes, lamp holder covers, decorative lamp holder covers, lamp holder sleeves, chandelier candle covers, chandelier candle sleeves, drip effect candle tubes, gothic candle sleeves, shabby chic candle sleeves, chandelier sleeve holders

To match the many names here at Light-Fix we stock over 50 varieties of candle tubes; if you wish to discuss height customisation our sister site King's Chandelier Services Ltd overs a customisation service on certain candle tubes

The  video "how to measure a candle tubes for your  chandelier and wall lights" offers advice on choosing  the size and style.
