Today, I have expanded my collection into low pressure sodium lamps. Since I’ve started collecting light bulbs in 2011, I never thought ten years ago that I’d be into SOX, but also street lights amongst others. I also stored away my HID collection as I plan on setting up a work desk for college.

Rewired the light in my little brother’s room, thing had a wire come loose and I had to g fix it. Got a pleasant surprise when inside the pancake box had two wood screws drilled into the box to support the light, shame not a lot of folks take pride in their work. :curse: Rewired the whole box and light with wagos, worked a great afterwards. Shows how a little extra effort makes less needed later on. :)

Last lighting thing I did:

I have an old 2'x2' troffer that years ago I upgraded from 2x 40w u-tubes to 3x 2-foot standard linear lamps (& electronic ballast)
(I sometimes use said fixture as part of my Christmas display. It always had dim spots between the lamps)
Last weekend, I added a 2nd ballast & 3 more 2-foot lamps.
(much better. .lol. )

Lit up a 135W SOX lamp off a Fulham Workhorse 7, my room looks like the twilight zone.

12/19/21 : I went on a 150 mile road trip to buy a Unistyle 400 cobra head from Facebook Marketplace. On the way home , I stopped at 3 different antique malls and got some photos of some really interesting and rare lighting items including a antique chandelier with 5 GE Mazda globe lamps in it and even a Revere Cat-Eye flood sans ballast housing .
