My Sylvania blackender blue needs a new end cap.

My Sylvania blackender blue needs a new end cap.

When I got the lamp it had a loose pin and it's been steadily getting worse. Hoping to get it repaired.


I'm also in need of a proper F30 preheat ballast for this lamp. It is not happy on rapidstart.

Would it be possible to repair it with something like JB weld ? I used it on the "Frankenfractor" and it worked great ! took forever to set up though .

I'm thinking find someway to hold the pins in the correct position and then fill the cavity with the epoxy and let it cure for a day or two.

JB weld or glue it. that's all you can do.

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

@RyanF40T12:
other than JB weld, what type of glue?
I've got a couple I need to fix too.


@HomeBrewLamps:
Awesome find on this.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

You could pack some baking soda into it. Make sure the pin is where you want it. Add some crazy glue onto the baking soda and itll harden like cement instantly.

This lamp will not last long on rapid start. Made for preheat applications.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.
