I touched a live HID capacitor once. I'll never do it again though. It was also a cool buzz too

I had another close call this time involving the container with most of my HID lamps. I was removing a container of mixed GLS lamps from the shelf above the HID lamps and the bottom of the GLS container bumped into the top of the HID container and as I was removing the GLS container from it's shelf, the bottom had started to drag the HID container out of it's shelf. I only noticed it when the GLS container felt like it was stuck against something and I looked down and noticed the HID container starting to tip over and fall. I then used a single hand to hold up the GLS container while I pushed the HID container back into the shelf with my other hand. I would have been devastated if the HID lamps had fallen as I would have lost many of them and potentially my 250w Canadian export MV lamp with a BT28 envelope.

@rjluna, it must be a problem elsewhere on the site. Looks like we're stuck until the site owner comes and fixes it.

@Molly, I approved your account, you should be able to log in now.

@BT25, ouch that's a shame. Let me know if you manage to get a OVY refractor. I'm curious as to how much those cost as I've been considering getting one to convert my OVF into a OVY.

I always assumed that all lamps made in Hungary are all Tungsramā€¦

Thanks for the info! This is something that I had been curious about ever since I got my first HPS lamp.

In Australia, you can connect an ignitor to a 400w MV ballast and use it with MH lamps. I have a gearbox with this exact setup which suggests that it was retrofitted at some point.

Sad indeed to hear this. Pardon my ignorance, but are the GE-branded Wattmiser 2D lamps that are made in Hungary from this factory..? They are indeed incredibly long lived, we have a 28W one in our bathroom that has been in daily use for over 10 years and shows no sign of failing.

Thanks for the part number Joe! I might be able to get these through my work.

@Avery: I bought the one on eBay...the clowns I bought it from shipped it with no packing, even after I asked them to pack it well. After going  :curse: ,they gave me a full refund. My plan is/was to install an OE 250W MH/MV ballast (it has an Advance currently), just for fun. I wanted it for the refractor too, just because it's unique...of course that was smashed!
Wow, That sucks!
