Lampen op transport

Lamps on the move

Lampen transportieren

Op deze pagina wil ik een verzameling aanlegen van transportmiddelen voor lampen. Met name transport- of opbergkisten; origineel, nabouw of eigenbouw. Maar wel allemaal met maten of een tekening om na te bouwen.
Natuurlijk lukt dit alleen wanneer iedereen informatie opstuurd.
Bij deze dan ook het verzoek om dit te doen.

Lamps on the move
Throughout the years all kinds of transport boxes are made to transport our precious lamps.
On this page I want to collect all kind of designs of transportboxes; original, original-rebuild or own idea. But all with dimensions and maybe drawings. So that everybody can use them and build his or hers own box.
Off coarse this only works with your help, so please send me your desing with dimensions or drawings.

But some boxes come with labels, as the swiss HASAG/Px boxes.
Here are the labels of these boxes in a PDF file.
You can download them by clicking on the lantern.
