Yup, someone else on Lighting Gallery has this as well. Ever since, it's given me ideas in terms of making this a magnetic version,
once I buy one online. If I'm correct, this should contain a HPF Electronic Rapid Start Ballast.

It does appear to have a rapid start ballest, but I thought PL tubes were preheat with starters in the lamp?

Larger PL lamps don't have built in starters.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

The highest wattage PL lamp to have a built-in starter is the 28w PL-C. 32w and higher don't have starters built-in.

Current: US 120v 60hz

Wow! Nice price for that lamp I paid almost $40 for mine and it came without the lamps. It would be interesting to see if you're lamp also has a Robertson REH239TT-120 It looks like you have the older version of this lamp as the newer ones have the power switch on the left side and have a multi-volt ballast

26W PL-C* There is no 28W PL-C lamp (or at least, if there is, then it is a special lamp)

Above that, the thin tube PL-T lamps go into high voltages (out of reach for Preheat with 230-ish Voc, allthough they probably could be made to work with Preheat at higher voltages)

PL-L are possible to power with common Preheat gear up to 36W (maybe 55W), above that we hit again the Voc limitation

There is one at least in the US. (and Canada probably) Looks like the 26w ones, but thicker diameter tubes.

@LampLover confirmed it... he was the other user that had the same desklamp. I'm betting, @LampLover, that Mdcastle's desklamp will
have the exact same ballast.
I'm still saving up for something big, so I'm still unable to purchase this lamp on Ebay, but there are A LOT of them for sale
on Ebay, although pretty expensive. I will be purchasing one after I purchase my third vehicle.

I actually paid $10 something for it because it was 33% off yellow tag day.

Ballast is a Robertson RER2L-T8 120

That ballast has different numbers, but looks exactly the same as LampLovers ballast, just as I thought. Definitely Rapid Start too.
But dude... just 10 bucks?? And you found this at Goodwill??? You lucked out REAL bad. Although these lamps are easily found on Ebay,
these lamps aren't very common, at least not to my knowledge.

@mdcastle does the ballast look like this if so it only lists the 40W PL-L and not the 36W ones.
There is also the RER2LT8-120H which does list the 36W PL-L but it has back leads with mounting studs.

I've seen these quite often at my local Goodwill(s), but never saw a need for it. If it was a cobra-head, well that's another story.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

I have never seen one at any of the Goodwill's or Savers (another thrift store chain) in my area but I am not out everyday anyway so if there was one I missed it.
I found mine on eBay while searching replacement lamps PL-L lamps for my other fixture that takes that style lamps. I liked it from the first sight and I just had to have it Lol!

@LampLover, right now I'm in the same boat as you. I have to have it as well. My room as of now uses 4 Ceramic Metal Halides as uplighting.
3 CMH Track lights, and one screw in Philips CMH Par 38. I'm planning on temporarily retiring all 4 of them,
and buying 3 of these Sadelights as uplighting, after converting them to magnetic HPF Rapid Start.
