GE F40CW Cool White Mainlighter Outside Etch

GE F40CW Cool White Mainlighter Outside Etch

This is a later one with an outside etch. Made in '82, it was the last year for the Mainlighter trademark. Still, it's an old school GE lamp, not that different from those made in the 60s.

I heard they have been made as late as 4/85, but only at the Jackson plant, is it true?

Love those! I have a slew of them. Got most of them standing in old cotton mill barrels in the shed. I need to organize them better, but I have always just kept all the working full wattage lamps I have acquired, regardless of brand or age. I have the 34 watt ones set aside to use in fixtures I trade or sell (mainly the suspended ceiling type).

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!
