Ahhh I'll find a way. My sister is in the UK, London so not the closest but I'm big on hiking, and to my knowledge the best hiking to be had in the UK is in the north. So we may yet meet one day

Ah, London, my home town..! Not been back since all this virus thing started, I have a phobia of face coverings so it's hard travelling anywhere, even walking to the supermarket  :(

Hiking, well you're on your own there, I had a friend in San Francisco who was always trying to get me to 'go for a walk' with him whenever I visited, but I only did it once, my feet were rather sore after 6 or 7 miles  :mrg:

Take care,

I remember talking to a man from Colorado on the train south once, he had just completed the nothern half of the West Highland Way, so I asked him how it compared to the scenery back home.  :wndr:
His answer was pretty much the same, just lower down. :D

You don't need to worry using directly the SOX.

I meant using directly the SOX lamp with the full circuit to tset the ignitor, there is no danger for the lamp regardless on how possibly the ignitor may misbehave (when still not fixed due to any reason).
Either the ignitor is working, then the lamp will start normally right away.
Or the mains voltage happens to be enough to ignite and support the discharge (however this is very unlikely scenario), so it will start seemingly normally as well, so no risk for the tube.
Or the ignitor won't work and the mains is (as expected) not enough, so the lamp stays essentially off.
No need to mess up with some fluorescent lamp in order to test the ignitor, you may just get false results (even the perfectly working SOX ignitor may not be enough to support the cold electrode operation of many fluorescent tubes, which may mislead you to thinking the ignitor is not yet working or so).
