Brassenders (any color), deep blue, and powergrooves (decent price) « on: December 27, 2021, 03:07:48 AM » Author: desktoptrashcan
I’ve been wanting a deep blue fluorescent lamp as well as a fluorescent lamp with brass end caps (any color or color temperature) for a while now. It would round out my fluorescent collection (except for a powergroove, which I’m still looking for some at a decent price and not horribly inflated).

Here are some F96PG17/CW tubes for about $51 USD per tube, but there are only 2 available:

Luckily, this wholesaler does not sell by the case.

Unfortunately, they charge about $200 for shipping due to the fact that they have to use a special freight carrier.  :(
I tried that once. Never again.

It might take decades to find a powergroove tube that is decently priced especially due to the fact that they are getting more rare as time goes on.

I guess I’ll just bite the bullet and buy the case of F72PG17 tubes on eBay… Oh well. RIP my bank account.  :-\  💸

Why the hurry and paying deep pockets for such PG lamps
 I am working on securing the case of F72 cheaply

I saw a GE F15T8/D brassender installed in a two-lamp fluorescent desk light. Unfortunately, I was in a hurry to leave (had to buy a part for one of my own fixtures). I’ll go back to that place later to get the fixture with the brassender.

Yeah, I was about to mention that most brassenders seemed to have been survivors found in desk lights so keep you eye out for them if you spot a desk lamp. If you're lucky you might be to buy the lamp separately or convince the owner to let you swap in a modern lamp.
