Homemade Blackender F32T8's

Homemade Blackender F32T8's

Click to view full size image

I don't know if F32T8 tubes were around long enough to be made as blackenders. So I made some. These are GE F32T8CW deluxe lamps. You can see the writing on the front of the ballast cover. This fixture has my rapid start magnetic F32T8 ballast in it. No instant start electronic lamp killers here.

The F32T8 lamp was introduced in the early 80s and the ones by Westinghouse and GTE Sylvania indeed had black end caps. The Sylvania 59w F96T8 slimline lamp had black end caps until the late 90s.

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

How did you make these? It looks as if the black endcaps were transplanted on these lamps.
