But they have no place here. I could stash them away, never to be lit again - they're much too bright to run. I hope the guy just offers them to someone else.

Too bright to run..? Don't be silly, they're wonderful..! If you think 135W is bright, what about our 280W SOI/H..?  :lps: :lps:  :mrg:

The 135W SOX lamp is actually somewhat brighter than a 280W SOI/H by well over 4000 lumens!  :lps:

I'm always interested in exchanging lamps with others. Send me a message if you would be interested in a trade. :)

I don't have the money currently. But I'd be happy to take. A 135 watt sox off your hands in the future.

What I'm probably going to do personally, over time, is reduce my "collection", if we can still call it so, to a very small selection of the truly valuable items. That miniature collection has more chances of being effectively handed over to some history preservation organization if I instruct the executor to do so in my will.

But I literally have zero expectations. This whole endeavour was fueled solely because of the internet, so the chances are incredibly low I'll ever find somebody IRL willing to take my relatively large collection off my hands. Selling is about to become very complicated for legal reasons. I guess there could still be a away to literally just give them away to fellow collectors within Canada, at this point this is the only solution I could come up with to keep most of my lighting equipment from ending up to the recycling centre.

I also plan to use them, especially the lamps, and enjoy them as much as I can. I guess I could donate some to the local non-profit thrift store, at least until their sale is completely banned.
