I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Holy balls I don't think abybody found any of these NOS. If you can, I bet you could use a 3D modeling program to recreate these. Auto desk inventor is good for this kind of stuff but I don't know how much the newer programs cost.

I would offer a trade for a normal socket and an integral 4 pin + lampholder since I have easy access to computers with cad software, but I'm a bit tied up... Would you set some aside if possible?

Would 3D printer plastic handle UV fairly enough to be used half inch from a Fluorescent lamp ?

@Ash - exactly what I was thinking. Whoever invented 3D printers oughta get 50 Nobel prizes. Even ceramic bases can be made. 3D print a negative mold out of plastic/rubber. Fill it with plaster or whatever they call the liquid paste before it's fired. You can make as many you want with the mold. The metal bits is gonna be an issue for mass production. For now just to replace broken sockets.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

Does shop have any more? I need some T17 holders and 4 pin starter socket.

I have some rare F100T12 Street lighting lamps that need these sockets.
Also i have some british 4 pin starters
Lacking starter sockets.

Plus it be nice that i can have a spare socket for my T17 unit.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

Awesome and extremely rare finds!

I have the same question as funkybulb I've got some T17 lamps, but have never seen the lampholders ... would be interested in a pair or two if they do.

-------
I've wondered about 3D printers too... not so much if the plastic would handle UV (you could paint it as a layer of protection) but would it melt from the heat of a lamp (especially an EOL lamp)??
I think you could figure out a way to make the metal parts...wouldn't be easy to do, but maybe use sheetmetal??

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

When I get time, I want to see if I can make mogul bi-pin adapters to fit onto VHO sockets and cut down 96" VHO/HO ballast channel to make a mogul base strip-light. Mogul plunger sockets would be cool too, lol.

The negative + ceramic would work easy for crude components like screw base sockets, but FL socket got to have structures with large surface area and thin material thickness - the socket face (lets say you use PCB material or the like for the back)

To make proper high density ceramic that got a chance to be formed into such shape without cracking :

- It gotta be injection moulded - gotta arrange appropriate ceramic composition and pressurize it in the mould, lets say with air compressor over the inlet of the ceramic or with some piston (that can be made as part of the 3D printed mould system)

- You gotta have a way to extract it from the mould without damaging the still unfired part - That would mean mould made of multiple plastic parts, that you can take apart around the outside of the ceramic, and the internal "walls" in the ceramic must be angled to allow separation from the inner part of the plastic mould (that or make the internal plastic of atleast 3 parts as well - Sides and pyramid shaped center that pushes them)



Metal contacts - I can think of a source for those..

Strip to pieces some cheap wall receptacle. If i understand correctly the construction of a US duplex receptacle, each side (not Earth) is a long Cu strip with 2 screw ports + 2 wire push-in ports in the center and folded contacts in the ends. Cheap ones would probably have thin Cu and no extra springs or such

Lets say you cut that in half and straighten out to flat shape the plug pin connection part, now you got 2 pieces of Cu strip, mirror image of each other (exactly for the 2 socket contacts), with ready means to connect a wire. Each of them then continues as straight strip with extended part on the end. Cut the extended part sides, now you get only the flat long rectangle strip. Bend it like this :

\\
/
|__
.||

(on the bottom is the screw)

And it is the perfect shape for FL socket contact

So basically 2 sockets out of each duplex receptacle

Oh wow, I found 4 T17 sockets a few years back but mine were used. I set them aside for the day I finally get either a F40 or F90T17, then I'll get the ballast and make my own fixture.

@ Joe: I still have that F90T17 fixture with lamps, starters, and a cord (less plug) for you if you ever make it down to this area. It's big and it's heavy though so beware lol. Comes with the mounts for stem mounting too. I still need to get the other one from my grandparents' basement. Once I'm done with my shed I'll grab it.
