Osram F9158MC 58/65W Ballast (May & Christe)

Osram F9158MC 58/65W Ballast (May & Christe)

Click to view full size image

Osram F9158MC 58/65W switch start/preheat ballast. Removed from a 5-foot GEC Speedpack which had been damaged, this ballast works perfectly however.

I believe this is a May & Christe Ballast.

Year & factory location unknown.

The paint on this has darkened from use, but the picture makes it appear worse than it does in person.

The Speedpack stayed in the skip as it had been bent, sadly.

I do have a double 5-foot GEC Speedpack here, I will upload a picture of this along with the heap of other linear fluorescent fixtures I have once I set up a decent space for doing so!

p.s. the double Speedpack I own has these exact same ballasts fitted but they're branded "GEC"

very cool, the firs gear with the osram stamp

Nothing is better as the good old tungsten incandescent, fluorescent Tube T12 and the High pressure Mercury lamp without coating.

Aww. In many cases FL luminaires straighten out pretty well

i got some luminaires that are supposed to be based on the Speedpack design (Gaash 0403) and sorta combination of Speedpack and Europa (Gaash 4400), would be interesting to see how they compare to the original Speedpack

I've fixed up a few fixtures that have had minor dents or were slightly out of straight, this one was damaged badly and wouldn't be the same again without cutting out the creases and welding plate in (not worth the effort).

I might be getting a single 5-foot Speedpack soon to go with my double, I've been told that one is in pretty good shape.

I do have a 5-foot and a couple of 8-foot Europa's laying around, they are good workhorse fixtures!
