The bulb collecting bug has me by the neck.

The bulb collecting bug has me by the neck.

Due to the rather bothersome thought of not having enough sox or mercury lamps to last a lifetime I've been snapping up alot of rather pricy ones. Granted I still have enough money to live on after the fact but holy shit I'm spending alot on bulbs!!


I want enough mercury to run at least two fixtures for the rest of my life... Sodium two fixtures And Sox I want to run one fixture... Although if I don't collect enough bulbs I'll relegate Sox to non dusk to dawn service. Obviously I'm not gonna use lamps like the /X or /W's in any sort of permanent dusk to dawn.. But /DX and clears are what I consider usable..


I haven't even really got any metal halide lamps or low wattage sodium lamps...

If anyone wants to trade a ton of low wattage sodium lamps for a bunch of 400 Watters I'm willing to get rid of some of my 400 watt sodium lamps.

I have no fixtures for 400 watt sodium but tons of the darn bulbs! I need 70, 100 and 150 Watters..
for halides I want 175 watters

I also want to get my hands on 1000 watt lamps. 1000 watt mercury I want to get at least three... Preferably one clear one... For sodium I already have three bulbs and I want to get two more halides.. I don't use 1000 watts alot but I due love that *massive light output*

I also want to get my hands on some more high wattage incandescents I have one 1500 watt lamp from the 40s and a photo flood from the same Era but I want to get a couple more 1500w lamps plus like a 3000 watt bulb or higher... I want to experience the power of a small sun essentially.

Then get the Toshiba 50,000 watt HPS lamp and gear for it!

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

I understand you perfectly . The price is very expensive. Today we are limited to buying .... when I buy in the United States the rates reach 45 euros. It's a damn madness. take it easy . Don't get depressed, I guess since you're afraid of running out of copies. get little by little ...

Welcome to the club buddy ! Last year I totaled up all my spent eBay gift cards and 'bout had a heart attack ! (Gift cards help me control what I spend and lets me shop on the internet with out using my credit card online )

BTW if you get the 50k HPS I'd be able to see your house from here in Ohio !

Collector,Hoarder,Pack-rat! Clear mercury Rules!!
