I have only one I bought it at a hardware store in a small town about half an hour drive from here. No more T-17s left there.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Dave, you should tell them they need to replenish their stock, that you would like more!
If you paid "sticker price" for it, you got a steal of a deal!! They are over $30 each now! I want some like YOURS though!

$20 dollors is not a bad price to pay for a 1950`s or 60`s vintage F90T17

I would pay that in a second.

If you think $20.00 is alot then just wait till you see what a 1941 or 1942 G-E Mazda F90T17 sells for If & when one becomes available - I know they are still out there.

I bought the other one of these at the same hardware store, it was a good price for this nice old piece of lighting history.

Hopefully I will soon have plenty more fixtures for these to go in! Going to check Saturday. Wish me luck! I am hoping for some vintage lamps still in these things too! I just talked to the guy who I got mine from has MANY more... His place was originally a cotton mill, built in 1895. It is SNOOP HEAVEN!!
*Edit: Got 15 more 2 lamp F90T17 fixtures and there are at least a dozen more left to acquire! Four tested and repaired so far. If any of yall with the vintage lamps for these would like something to light them up with, let's trade em! I will probably use about 10-12 of them and keep an extra one or two. I would like the others to go to fellow collectors. I need lamps for them!!

Great find! (actually came across this image from a google search LOL)

Would love to find a T17 fixture/lamps someday

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

@xmaslightguy, the lamps are still available and I have 4 fixtures for collectors/friends here. I have promised all but one...It is yours if you want to lay claim to it. I will need the name and address of you and everyone else I promised them to. I have yet to figure out how to package these heavy awkward things though!

Yep i saw some places still selling the F90T17 Lamps when i did that google search...I see there's also a F40T17 (and even a $99 54" 180w T17 "Diazo Blue" - for blueprint machines...i've actually seen one of these lamps in operation...only T17 i've ever seen )

I'll PM you on the fixture.

@xmaslightguy, the F40T17 is a IS "retrofit" version of the F90T17. It has the mogul bipins but uses a ballast that will run F40s and F48s (the slimline, single pin version). It is a 5 foot lamp. I would imagine it is a dim son of a gun!
10-4 on the fixture. I am going to get a list of the folks who want em and get a price qoute on shipping, if I can ever figure out how to package the damn things! Looks like I will have to build some sort of crate.

I noticed that it said 'Instant Start Only' on the pages selling F40T17's ... yep i bet your right that those would be dim LOL
Wonder what would happen if you tried firing on up with a F40/RS ballast? ... or maybe a F32/IS ballast ( bet they'd be really dim then LOL)

No they won't work on rapid start. The pins are short circuited inside the end caps. They should work on F32T8 instant start ballasts tho.

That's what I thought too....interesting. Well they DO say they are a replacement for a F90T17, along with ballast.....that explains it...
