Wow that GE is from the 1940s

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

Love that GE White! F40T12 lamps from the '40s are much harder to find than the smaller lamps, probably because they were mostly used in commercial applications where they failed and were replaced early on. The smaller lamps were mostly used in residential fixtures, many of which don't get heavy use. By the way, the unknown F40CW was made by Sylvania.

Also, welcome to L-G!

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

Thats very cool to hear about the GE lamp that means it could very well be one of the original lamps in one of my two fixtures that have ballasts dating form late 47 and early 48. Best part is all the lamps work great!

I remember having a few of those no name sylvania lamps. I got them from handy city on sale for .75 each. They are long gone now.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

Yes it was in the 3 lamp fixture, I changed it for the /941's since it was a bit pink and dimmer than other lamps
