A) I'd go broke paying the electric !

C) Every insect in the county would love me !

Nice! Also don't forget the extra 1000 watts for the Widelite.

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

Thanks guys ! When I'm working outside I want it to be as bright as possible so I can actually see what I'm doing . I HATE fumbling around with a flashlight or drop light !

@ Fluorescent05 : Didn't forget about my namesake ! It's in the backyard (well,will be soon again !) to light my field .

Wow...watch that meter spin! Actually Tim, it really looks nice...I did something similar at my folks place when I was growing up. My dad would say that the Soviets would bomb us thinking it was some government installation!

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Thanks Eric ! I've been told the same thing in the past regarding some of my X-mas light set-ups !
