I think the Philips / Sylvania newer endcaps for T12 are the ugliest ever.

There are Black Enders in my schools library! The reason they haven't been replaced is because they only ever turn on half the lights. (Its way over lit)

I GUARANTEE I could! I could light all the F40 ones, preheat style in less than one row of the fixtures in my shop!
I could light several of the F30s at once, but would have to do a few different videos to do all of them. LOL Would lighting them in a bug zapper count? I have a 2 x 30w preheat bug zapper light. Love your collection man!

Not all are suitable for preheaters LOL. Like the few F32T8s and energy saving T-12s.

Hmmm Dave I see some of the lamps are developing green ends. You better get rid of them before the mold spreads to the other tubes. I see some are completely decayed (black ends) and then there is that mysteriously diseased red one.

Seriously though....nice collection! I won't collect Altos myself, and my collection is devoid of any blackenders simply because I've never been able to obtain one.

I'm lampin...

Good collection!

The red ... awesome color!

& there's nothing wrong a few Alto's in the collection (some types/colors of them are actually good lamps)

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

So whats the deal with the T12 with the green cap, over here the only lamps with a green cap is the new Philips T5 Eco lamps? There is another T8 comming out soon which is a watt misser?

And they are known to go mercury starved easy, and kill ballasts!

Yeah, the F40T12 version seems to be the best out of them, but the F34T12 and HO lamps are the WORST reliability wise!

I wonder if they would run over here in england? i would like to try one out, Is this the reason you guys have problems with magnetic ballasts? I have noticed you guys have A LOT of problems with them? I have more problems with electronic HF ballasts!

The F40T12s should work on your ballasts. Both the USA and European T12s are electrically identical. The quality on our ballasts vary greatly, but I would think magnetic ballasts are generally more dependable than electronic ballasts. Usually in magnetic ballasts, the reasons they fail are usually a bad thermal protector or a bad capacitor. Simplier ballasts without capacitors are very hard to destroy. I have replaced many electronic ballasts before on the job they are junk. Also the electronics in CFLs here are prone to starting fires at end of life, sometimes.

What about with the 8 foot T12 over here we only have 3 different sizes... 125w 100w and 85w Do you think you have anything that would run off them? How much do you think it would cost to get some 4' T12s shipped over?

Nice stuff!!!!

The light bulb is probably one of the best inventions ever! Whit out this awesome object, the history of humanity could be another!
I love HID and Fluorescent (specially SlimLine) bulbs so my collection bases on that! Please return MV/T12!

@ Kev I would love to trade some American tube for GB made tubes in the future
Any way I located a American made 40 watt 2 footer and 120 watt 8 footer with Bipins. Basically a Derated 125 watt 8 foot lamps. Those lamp prolly exempt from your lamps bans as they are suitable for photograpic
