The blackenders have a VERY long startup flicker and the Hemco FS-4 metal can starter that I am using for the preheat ballast (which I assume is around 30 years old now) sometimes preheats for a very long time and I get worried it's stuck, but it always opens eventually.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
