More than happy they resumed! Was pissed when many ReStores stopped carrying old fluorescent.

Which one is this?

Collecting lamps is a side hobby but I think it's cool nonetheless.

Those TFCs are real junk!

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

I have some F15T8 TFC tubes, they seem ok, one of them has a crack in the glass but it still has a full vacuum and works.

Was in the Loma Linda ReStore and the used fluorescent tube barrel was empty, they had only U bends and a few CFLs. Montclair RS had just new stuff

The ReStores here quit carrying fluorescents years ago. Because of that I don't go there very often anymore.

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

Mine still does but not as often as before, but the guy that was turning tube donations away is gone now. The newer guy there knows I go there looking for tubes.

the old guy that turned away tubes was the cause of my restore not having any good lights for a while. He was also the reason they had piles of old tube tvs, which they aren't supposed to accept at all.

@Rick: The newest things you missed were some Norelco PARs (one dead) and a 1960's fluorescent desk lamp (loud ballast). Montclair is not all that bad. There, you can get pretty good deals on even the new stuff if it doesn't have a price. I got a box of 14 brand new Sylvania F15T8/CW for $2.40.

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