I know I know, I keep dissappearing into the shadows. Anyways, found a box of F72PG17 power groove lamps along with a box of GE F72T12 VHO lamps. The two Champions and GE Mazda were found in oakland at a local flea market/junk store. All in all, some great finds in May!

Great find!! Sadly, the GE Mazda looks EOL but is a nice collector's item.

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

Yeah, they seem to pop up in unusual places. Some of them were EOL when I got them. As for the powergrooves, I had a feeling they would one day find me.

Looking at the date, this was uploaded last year.
Now they've been 're-found' just under 1 year later
Glad to hear they're safe.
still sad what happened to J-Frog

Its All For The Christmas Lights...
And A Good Summer Thunderstorm!
