Yep. I saw some F40's a while ago at Marvin's, but I couldn't afford to get them at the time. That was about a year ago.

Thin glass like all modern Phillips tubes?

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

Look at the state of that etch! Will this seriously do 18k hours?

My main area of interest is vintage fluorescent and mercury lamps. Always interested in doing lamp trades - just let me know! Smiley

Ah, are we sure this came off the same machinery as the old blackenders? Take a closer look where it says "made in Mexico."

I bought a pair of Mexico Philips FB40 Cool White Plus or something like that from HD. They look more like /CWX....sort of purplish and thin phosphors, also no cathode shields. Do these have cathode shields?

The Mexican Philips full wattage FBT12s are usually pretty good, lasts about 6-7 years in commercial use. The age marks are Westinghouse.
