Power Grooving

Power Grooving

Debated but responded to a Craigslist ad for "G.E. 8 foot florescent lightbulbs". Guy said he had 4-5 boxes of used from a factory. $120 in gas 10 hours of travel and 541 miles later I have 6 boxes of which 44 bulbs are used full power, 2 new watt misers and 2 bulbs that violently expired before I got them. Oh and also threw in 2 porcelain reflector fixtures and 2 spare VHO ballasts. Was it worth it at $10 a box?
