Replaced a single tube 36w T8 fluorescent fitting with a 2x58w T8 weatherpack for increased brightness.
That'll do it.!  Cheesy

Look at this article. GE only sold the LED business; the North American consumer division is still owned by them, for now at least. Unfortunately, they’ve also been trying to get rid of the rest of their lighting business, but no company has been willing to buy it so far.

I wonder what NHEC will do since they only use GE Leds.

 76   Lanterns/Fixtures / Vintage & Antique / Do anyone find they like the older style fixtures now?  on: January 18, 2020, 02:43:00 PM

I used to not like the older style light fixtures, such as U-bent glass bathroom fixtures, drum style ceiling fixtures, and bedroom fixtures with the square wavy glass shades. But lately, I notice I seem to like these fixtures for some reason, and I think it's neat that they still sell them. I think as these fixtures get older, they will be appreciated more. I guessing these styles came around in the 1950s so they are getting to be historical eventually, I think, just as antique light fixtures from the 1930s-40s and before are considered antique and desirable now.

@Fluorescent05, yezzir! I left them in the kitchen light fixtures. It was a choice between keeping my cold
temp magnetic Rapid Start ballasts in those kitchen fixtures (F40T12 fixtures) or take those cold temp
ballasts out and install the ballasts I don't like nearly as much as the cold temp ones.
At the time, I had that 87% power factor magnetic R.S ballast already installed in the kitchen fixture
close to the cabinets, so I uninstalled the cold temp ballast furthest from the kitchen cabinets and
replaced it with the ballast from the Sadelite desk lamp.
So in short (to keep this on topic, although it's lighting related) my ballast collection went down by two ballasts.
I had no other lamer ballast that I could install faster/easier than those two ballasts.

The listing has ended, but doesn't say it sold.
It will have reached the end of the auction period, and will probably be re-listed soon.

I don't really have one, probably old VWs, although I do like the looks of the old cars.

I'm more into cars from the 1980s-current.
