I hope you're saving them.

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

Those are good tubes compared to the junk produced today. You literally cannot go out and buy tubes of this quality and spec anymore. The ones made today are low lumen and perform poorly from the halfassed manufacturing and low mercury content. Please make sure you dont waste these, save them or give to someone who'll use them

I didn't toss them, i figured maybe somebody on here would want some. They all work, not a heck of a lot of hours on them, none are crazy blackened. Some of the ballasts were failing. My garage has 3 rows of 10, 2 lamp fixtures. I remember it was $800 for the 30 fixtures from Home Depot in 1997, the tubes were $4.50 ea.

Would have to take some measures so they can arrive safely.

Long live Mercury Vapor and Incandescent street lighting!

Nice stash! These are made in Trois Rivieres, Quebec that's not too far from Montreal, one of my all time favorite cities Unfortunately, like Nick I'm also far away so these would have to survive a long trip by mail for us down South.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Stop the lamp bans!

I've received 4' lamps that were well-wrapped and sent in cardboard boxes with reinforced corners, and they've always arrived safely.

They were kind to my 5 turret stoplight fixtures I bought on ebay off someone in Alberta. All 5 boxes came up all good. I helped the mailman unload them
