You will need 120 to 277 volts step up transformer to run them properly. might fire up on 240 volts your talking 37 volt drop. Even if it does strike it would be underdriven.

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

I have a couple of these...they will fire up just fine on 240v.
(but I've never done anything more than just a short test)

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

"No PCB's"
Those quotation marks don't make it seem very convincing.

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

What's wrong about that?

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

- Lamp and fixture collector
- Switch and receptacle collector.
