So, This is it. This is the peak of joy when it comes to collecting fluorescent tubes. I don't think anyone on this gallery has ever had an original Duro-test power twist cardboard case, let alone filled with tubes. I don't want to brag or anything, but I think I will let myself keep my head high for a moment or two :D Granted I don't have the famous double cathode tube, or famous older double-twist tube, but I have a case of simple last generation power-twist tubes. Nice.
Found this case on the old things advertisement site. The woman wanted 5 euros apiece. Ridiculous, but nit that much. I negotiated the final price of 55 euros for the whole case. The woman really didn't knew the value of these things. 55 euros is somewhat equal to 65 dollars. I spent my entire scholarship money of this month for these tubes.

Nice

Thanks!

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

You have done a good job!!

It's like me Wednesday going in a re-use store - And they have boxes full of incandescents, Early 80's triphosphor T8's, late 60's halophosphates, ... I spent around $100 there! I just cannot let it be!
