Antique barber pole restoration

Restoring this vintage barber pole was a challenge.




from removing rust to every mechanical part that needed replacing or fixing/rebuilding.
rebuilding the motor using original vintage parts
re wiring, socketing, re fabricating parts of the 2 bulb lighting system,
new striped tube and rotating frame. To control the on / off spinning i retrofitted a remote control unit in place of it's original pull string switch so it can be turned on from inside the salon. Both the blue globe light on top and spinning striped tube lighting are on a dusk till dawn light sensor switch.
