Wow, that looks pretty early. Late 50s/early 60s maybe?

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

Were they electrically compatible with T12 shaped slimline with this T8 version?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I believe the old T8 version of Both F96 and F72 have higher lamp voltages, closer to the modern electronic T8 versions.

But loaded with plenty of mercury goodness unlike the current ones.

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

I think these were made to run at something like 100-300 mA depending on the ballast used, which would make them a good fit for modern F96T8 electronic ballasts. I believe modern F96T8 lamps will run reasonably well on the old T8 Slimline ballasts too.

Yeah, I seen an old GE catalogue online somewhere that listed the ballasts for these in those different lamp current options.
