For sure. I took them out to a couple electrical shops in LA. Plenty of oldies. How about 1960s ITT fluorescent lamps.

WOW--NOW THERE IS A SHADY-LOOKING BUNCH OF 'THUGS' IF I EVER SAW ANY! LOL! You look like you are all stealing this stuff out of a storage unit in this pic! Well, CHEERS and HELLO to y'all! It's freaking AWESOME to see these "kids" (compared to MY old ASS----pushin' 50--will be in December---UGH! ) into the stuff I was into when I was young! This is a great thing, becuause I know I have folks I can TRUST that i can pass my collection down to, Dave already knows that he is tops on that list, and he can share my collection as he sees fit with you young'uns if this old FART kicks the bucket and goes bites the Green Weenie and goes to the big Form 109 in the sky! Seriously, I love you all on L-G---sometimes my opinions on the current lighting stuff are strong, because I feel VERY alienated by this weird stuff, but you guys are all awesome to the max---I really don't have any issues with anybody here. Dave, you are, of course, my BEST BUD of all, you can't even BEGIN to believe how excited and honored I was to get to meet you in RI back in 2011! L-G KICKS ASS, and I really enjoy it here---I NEED to start using my (first generation) iPhone, my first smart phone, to take and upload pics and clips of my vast collection! I also have to upload some cool things I have to the off topic section----like my rare 1959 Wurlitzer Model 700 spinet type electric piano---and mine is one of the VERY FEW very early model 700's with features different from all 700's that came after the first 2-3 months of production! She has an AWESOME vacuum tube amplifier, with 1, 5Y3GT double-diode full-wave rectifier for DC plate voltage and bias voltage on the piano's electrostatic pickups (320 volts!), 2, 6V6GT Beam Power Tubes, both pentodes, with the buffer grid, for the output stage to the speaker, and the famous 12AX7, double-triode high-MU (gain) pre amplifer tube for the input stage. All tubes are octal-base except the 12AX7, which is a miniature tube with a 9-pin miniature base. I can tell you, this old electric piano has taken me over, and needed major repair work, especially to the wood at the base, because it was left in a damp/wet location for years before I got her. The bottom literally fell out---amplifier, and the pedal bearing block for the 2 pedals were barely staying in place! Also of note, this is the ONLY Wurlitzer (or any make for that matter) electric piano with 2 pedals---the usual on all EP's, "damper" or sustain pedal, and the little-used on most pianos, Una-Corda ("soft") pedal that lowers volume, in the case of this EP by shunting a 6 ohm 10 watt wire wound resistor directly across the speaker! Do this with a solid state amp and watch it start SMOKING! Tube amps RULE! (for a little more information, the center pedal on common pianos with 3 pedals, it is called the "sostanuto" pedal, and is also a damper/sustain pedal, but instead of lifting ALL the dampers like the regular damper pedal on the right, it only holds up the damper for each individual note played, and leaves all other dampers down, until released. Seldom used, it prevents "bleed over" from note to note in soft and very delicate passages, as well as makes a more pure sound when playing loud.) Yeah, I know a little about pianos! Anyway, I just got this lovely old gal working about a week ago, all the let-offs and many of the dampers need major adjustment, but it WORKS, and it sounds TERRIFIC! It has that classic "Wurlitzer "bark" and tone heard on the later model 200 and 200A, which are solid-state amplified, but with lots of bad-ass "distortion, Grit and grind and growl" from that awesome old tube amp! Throw a 12AU7 (19% MU) or a 12AT7 (39% MU) instead of the 12AX7 with 100% MU, and it sounds sweeter like the solid-state model 200--in fact pretty much IDENTICAL, but will require external amplification due to the lower-gain pre amp tube cutting down the total amplification of the whole internal amp! I intend to externally amplify this if I use it onstage no matter WHAT pre amp tube in in the piano's amp! Just a very cool and CUTE little piano and a piece of music history that is RICH in heritage!

Anyway, Dave---and friends---hope ya all had a BALL! You guys find some great stuff out there---here it is getting hard to find! Too much of it being thrown away by our ultra-liberal construction contractors, and since these liberals also tax stores on existing stock here, they are quick to throw out stuff like this old lighting stuff to save tax costs! Cheers! Rick "C-6!

OH---by the way, Dave---almost forgot----I can see the back of your old Mopar under all that obvious lighting stuff----what are ya gonna get that beauty running? I have been getting old forgotten projects done alot lately! You should be driving a REAL car, not that Infini-Jap piece of scrap metal, dude! The slant-6 is the BEST 4-Stroke car engine EVER HANDS DOWN! The close second? Yup---also MOPAR! The absolutely un-killable 318 V-8! You can't even BEGIN to imagine how BAD I MISS my little 1979 short bed Dodge pickup truck with that awesomely dependable and sweet running and sounding and awesome on gas, 225 slant-six! I got 30+ MPG with this beast all the time, and even heavily loaded and working hard I never got less than 22-24! I did cry when a junk guy who was told NOT to touch my little '79 truck went ahead and ripped the cab off with a log grapple and junked my baby. I have a pic of her in my room, and her keys hang on the wall, I also picked up the driver side "150 Custom" badge after she was gone the next day, and broke down again. You get attached to a vehicle like that! I never got over what that jerk did to my truck, and never WILL. RIP, little Mopar! you served me WELL. (over 500,000 miles on the clock, had 401,000 when I bought it, ironically from this same guy, and she didn't use a DROP of oil even at half a million miles!) Good memories but with such a sad ending.

I love how the garage door barely closes thanks to all the boxes full of lamps.

Nice to "meet" more members, too.

Yep. Philips 125w, made in Holland. It's actually in my collection, but he was holding it for the photo.
