Last one standing. The 40 year old stash of used lamps was down to two, and I decided to save them rather than burn them all up. It was cleanup day to day, so it was time to pull the boxes don from the garage rafters and recycle them so the space could be used for something else. I found one of the lamps had a busted end, so now I have one, plus the ones in use. I'll probably pull a good working one out of service so I have a set.

Unsure what to do for lamps now. I have one T8 only fixture (that I buy fresh lamps for), three that can use either, and 7 that are T 12 only. Haven't decided whether to start buying fresh T12 lamps, or to start converting to T8 or LED.

Wow! How old are these? Today was "spring cleaning" for me too, I just hope this weather is here to stay this time.

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

I still have a couple of these old cases, in much worse shape!

Keep em T12. Lamps are still readily available everywhere.

What are the best current production cool white T12s? I've been unimpressed with a case of Sylvania I bought for my stepfather's car dealership?

Honestly on the F40T12 form, I have no problem with any of the "big three". (Philips, GE, Sylvania)
