Wanted: F72PG17 Tubes « on: October 11, 2021, 05:43:04 PM » Author: desktoptrashcan
I will need these for the GE Form 406 if I end up getting it. If not, I still want some for my collection. I saw some on eBay, but it was 600 bucks for a case plus 320 bucks shipping!  @-@

Unfortunately the F72 size was the first to be discontinued so I'm not sure if anyone else would have them. You could also install F72T12/VHO lamps which should be a lot easier to find. You could also reballast for F72T12/HO and use those lamps instead.

Here is a place where I bought a F72T12 VHO tube:

Each individual tube costs a little under $40USD.

@  desttoptrashcan if your from south texas
 My 6 footer stash of tubes could use little bit of
 Thining,  as there PG72 tubes,  and VHO westy
And even some rare F100T12 mogul bipin T12
 Street lighting tubes in there,  it would help me
  Make room for other rare tubes to put in it place.

I just posted on the gallery with stash of 6 footers.,   There lot more here than i have posted on the gallery.   I saw those Form 406 in michigan wanted it but i had no way of getting them down here.
As I lacked disposable income at right moments.  Keep in mind those
PG72 came from Jfrogs collection of rescue saves.  That story behind them.  As his collection is slowly being distrubuted.
Those 100 watt street lighting tubes I found them on my way
To california.  Made a pit stop there was ebay seller that sold bunch
Of rare lamps in midland texas.  That ebay seller bought a electrician
Wherehouse on his land.  That was filled with rare lamps. This ebay
Seller known as Southernvintagelights.  He had loads of tubes there.
Including those 100 watt Mogul bipin street lighting tubes that the story behind those.
