better way way way late than never! « on: March 09, 2021, 02:21:21 PM » Author: F20T12
hi, my name is Perry, and I am 12 years old. I forgot to post this one I first joined, so I'm going to post it now! I've been collecting lights for a little over a year now, and I absolutely love it! I've been in love with lights ever since I was one year old, I just love the way they turned off and turned on. about a year ago I found a YouTube channel called dieselducy, he collects preheat fluorescent light fixtures, and after watching a few of those preheat fluorescent light fixture videos I was obsessed with preheat fluorescent. I was so obsessed, that I told my mom I wanted to start collecting preheat fluorescent, but I didn't know where to find them. one day I was watching dieselducy's channel and I heard him say he got his preheat fluorescent light fixture from lighting Gallery user paintballer22.so I came here on lighting Gallery expecting this place to be a website where you can buy preheat fluorescent light fixtures, lol. I asked to join and the administrators let me in, I started searching for preheat fluorescent lights. after looking for fluorescent light fixtures for about 2 hours one day I finally realized this is where you post pictures of your lights, not where you buy lights. so I stopped coming here on lighting gallery for about two months when finally I found my first preheat fluorescent light fixture!I was so happy I finally got it! I found out how to upload pictures here and I posted a picture of it.https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=13124&pos=122&pid=168733  .... literally a day after I posted this picture I saw a video by technology connections... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1dMlVwUsrA . where he explained that the orange light coming from the street lights are   called high-pressure sodium. after that video I got obsessed with all kinds of HID lighting. a big thank you to dieselducy, technology connections, and parrot175 for the great information.

Hi Perry, a belated welcome from us here in the frozen North-East of Scotland  :love:

By the way, can I recommend you read this information about posting links, especially potentially long ones like eBay listings, that way they don't go off the end of the screen and potentially break.

Hi Perry glad to have you on board!
I'm also greatful for the eBay link you sent me awhile back for some F24T12 Westinghouse slimline blackenders!
