What are the brown endcaps made of?

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

Probably brass but show a pic with the lamps off the GE 40 watt WHITE is the most likely to have the brass endcaps

I think they are brass but one has some rust on it. Not sure if brass can rust...

I wouldn't think so, but my mazda lamp has rust on the end caps. I don't know what they are made of.

Wow...I used to have a GE F40 Daylight inside etch when I was about 6th grade. It had about the same usage with the emission rings.

Also a nice find from 12/70. made at the Bucyrus, OH plant.

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

There's a loose piece of glass rattling around inside the Mainlighter but works fine! Only thing is that glass piece will take off the phospor bit by bit...

Way cool! I don't have a GE Mainlighter daylight but I have a couple Mainlighter cool whites. And I don't even have a 4' lamp made before the 1960s!

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.
