I am looking for something like this, preferably with a rotating light inside. I'm googling around now, but if you have a good source, please share!

I have generic warning lights like that, I am looking for the caged variety that looks all "NORAD," ya know?

I found some cages on Amazon, but just for regular bulbs. I can probably work with it... pretty steep though!

This place has something similar but no price and not sure how reliable they are:
Welcome to Q-Light Warning Light Distribution
(the second on the page)

SignalGuys.com: Base Mount Strobe Warning Light
I could see painting the white plastic with metallic paint to make it more industrial looking.
Ouch on the price, tho

I would check out some lighting sections at the home improvement stores to see about buying the outdoor lighting cages that would fit over the cheaper warning lights.

BUT... what about getting the regular rotating lights and then building a wire cage out of medium gage wire (and a pvc base) or cut pieces of aluminum? That would be pretty easy for someone like you, and tons cheaper and you could get exactly the look you want for a whole lot less $$$.

Lowe's or Home Depot should have safety cage lights. Just paint the clear bulb cover with glass paint. You could then use a flashing insert to make the bulb flash. I believe they are plastic cages though.

That style of light is typically a steady, flashing or strobe, not a rotating light. It is too slim to fit the rotating reflector in.

That particular model appears very similar to the Federal Signal USIX, possibly an earlier model.

Here are some rotating warning lights if you really want that style.

Keep in mind, any industrial warning light is likely going to be quite expensive unless you get lucky and find one that is used, but even then they can still be rather expensive if they are a hazardous location light.
