Very nice find. You don't see too many T8 Norelcos, or any Norelcos for that matter. I have four F40/CWs (one with a broken cathode) and one F20/CW.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

When did Norelco become Philips?

Where are daylight fluorescents when you need them?

Around 1984 when they bought Westinghouse I believe.

Norelco was Philips in the US before Philips bought Westinghouse in 1982. Philips sounded too close to Philco, an electronics company that later went under, so there were copyright infringement issues with the name/intellectual property. So Norelco stood for: NORth american philips lighting & electrical CO.

Nick, I have about six of those Norelco lamps myself! One is spent with a bad cathode, but I keep it as my one EOL F40 lamp for mercury migration experiments, etc. What end caps do yours have? Two of mine (including the dead one) have the GE style but squared off edges instead of rounded, and the others have the modern Philips/Sylvania style end cap with one notch, not the three like on some '90s Philips lamps.

Mine have the single brown insulator, shown here.

Awesome! I have a pair of F20s and I think an F40 or two. That's it for me as far as Norelco lamps go IIRC.

Is it possible to decipher the date code on this tube?
