gave a friend a seed starter from the 60's
it has 2 westinghouse agro lite tubes probably the originals.
she uses it every year.
with that duty cycle she can probably hand it down when she passes.
i used a 14w ge daylight in a chrome wall fixture i 12v converted till i knew just how old it was.
40's lamp and tube.
that tube is safely in my collection.fixture has a chroma 50 in it.still 12v.
but i made no permanent mods to it and have the original parts.
even reused existing holes for the led nightlight.

I mostly run more recent lamps, but sometimes do run my vintage tubes.  I have a pair of 1944 GE White tubes that put out a real nice light.

古董灯管我是不会用于照明的,因为它们对我来说只有收藏价值,要是使用的话显色指数太低,肤色感觉怪怪的。但是古董驱动装置我会使用的,比如1960-1990年代的镇流器和启辉器。我现在在电脑桌上方的暖气管子上安的灯是1987年生产的上海沪光牌T5 12W灯架,镇流器和启辉器从来没换过,但是灯管是2016年生产的现代照明,T5 12W 840的,因为原配的灯管感觉不舒服,从此灯光下肤色显得特别糟糕!
