Man what a beauty. The shiny silver arc tube ends and everything else. So sweet little lamps that are not to be taken lightly. Surprisingly bright.

Cool Dave! (I got me some too, just haven't lit 'em up.)

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

do you have any of those Eye 50w clear lamps to compare these to? I'm curious to know if the color and light output is any different. I actually didn't know that other manufacturers besides Eye made clear 50w lamps until this year.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Do you have the proper ballast for this?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
