An Unearthly Child Lamp

Does anyone know the height and diameter of the original fresnel lens used in the first story?

Also, were the square lamp base and round top disc (on top of the fresnel) the same width? If so, what is the width please?

I've seen the plans/drawings on here, but the OP says in the post that the lamp may be too small.

Thanks

Hi,

The dimensions for the lamp were originally posted here https://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=644.225

However during the forum's downtime, several replies seem to have gone missing and with them the dimensions for the lamp.

I'm not going to reload the missing info but if you'd like to message me, I'll send you the info you need.

Hi Crispin,
No, in response to a couple of direct messages, I posted an updated version which showed the overhead view including the square box on which the lamp stands.

However, I'm glad you posted this link instead as it should answer the question posed.

Thanks for the help.

Thanks guys, that's great. The lens is wider than I thought.
