One Solution for Hard to Find Low Voltage Fixtures
Background: Ted, a Homeowner from Mickleton, NJ
Question: I have a paver patio with 3 foot columns and the patio has low voltage landscape lighting. The problem is I can’t find decent low voltage post type fixture for my columns. I was told that I can use 120v post fixture on my 12v landscape lighting provided that I use a 12v bulb. Will that be OK?
Thanks for your electrical question Ted.
Yes Ted, there are 12 volt standard base lamps that can be used for your application.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
