TLD 58w is a European 5 foot T8 lamp.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Oh ok. Thus the linear lamps in the diagram. But European lamp? What's it doing in a Canadian trash bin? Thought it was for something like This Lamp. Would this ballast handle F54T5 HO lamps?

Not sure about the t5ho lamps off the top of my head.

Cool saves, in particular the lower one...
That TLD 58w ballast likely came out of a store's refrigeration/freezer unit (most common use for the 5' European lamps in the US or Canada)
While it may light a F54T5, the lamp specs are different & probably overdrive the ballast - if anything a F40T12 would be a closer choice (or if you have a standard 40w 5' T8, that'll work - lamp will be overdriven but the ballast shouldn't be).

If just for a short period testing though, it wouldn't really matter which one.

Forget the lights..just give me a good lightning storm & tornado to go watch...
