Refurb - Repair - Remake - Replace
Designer and maker of parts for your perfect project.
Mk3 "Egg cup" Dome Light Kit, designed, developed and 3D printed by Tom's Refurbishments, with assistance from digital artist "TARDISman550" on Instagram and Twitter.
Included in each kit are the parts as follows:
2 X 3D Printed threaded "Egg Cup" lenses
2 X 3D Printed threaded base plates
2 X E10 lamp fittings with approximately 30cm cable
2 X E10 bulbs rated 12v 2.2/3w
4 X M3 bolts at 20mm long
4 X M3 washers
4 X M3 hex nuts
To fit these to the dome section of your project, you will need to drill a 10mm hole as the centre of the light fitting, for the E10 holder to fit through, with 2 3mm holes either side. The threaded base plates are designed with the "TR" logo on the top surface and can act as templates to drill out the holes required. Once finished, these will give the authentic late 60's look to your finished build whilst also being easy to unscrew from the threaded base to change bulbs when required.
It is advisable to use some epoxy resin on the outer side of the prewired E10 fittings when assembling them into the threaded base plates to secure them if you wish to do so. However, these parts have been printed to a fine tolerance so that the E10 holders are a push-fit into the threaded base plates and therefore should not require gluing.
* These dome lights have now technically been classed as "Screen Accurate" due to being used on a prop that was featured on BBC2 in October 2022.*
Toms refurbishment is one if not the best business that can provide you with recreated "prop" parts to a outstanding degree and would definitely recommend him as his speed in posting and the finish quality of the product is handled with such care. Tom himself is also very kind and encouraging and a pleasure to talk to. Thanks to Tom I have been able to start my dream of having my own personal "army" which would not be possible without parts provided by Tom.

I contacted Tom back in 2019 about making some improvements to my project so that I could take him to events and Comic Cons. Tom saw this as a challenge and found solutions which created a beautiful, reliable machine that works wonderfully and allowed me to attend the Queen's Jubilee Parade without any technical issues. I fully recommend Tom's Refurbishments and I intend to commission my other project with Tom in the near future.
