Some of the Orange cap Westies that I am getting.  These should be 70s early 80s vintage I believe.

Installed 2 75W MV bulbs to replace 2 70W MH bulbs and they work GREAT!  Also replaced 2 70W MH with 2 100W MH and they too are working great.  Also installed a non-protected 70W Philips MH bulb, will run this for about a year and then toss it and replace it with a 75W MV.  The MVs are coated so good colortone.

picked up about 60 or so F30T12 tubes, mixture of CW and WW from a church building I help maintain that converted to T8 a few years back.  Problem is, there are very few 30 inch fixtures out there, so I may never find a use for them.  1980s and 90s vintage Sylvania.

Yeah the F30s are quite niche compared to the F20s and the F40s. I have a almost complete case of F25s (3ft T8) that will probably last me for a while.

I haven't been doing much lighting related stuff lately because of personal reasons but I do plan to make videos of some of my streetlights and release them over the few days.

Fluro starter pings combined with a 50hz ballast hum and blinking tubes is music to my ears.

The local Frattallone's Hardware (formerly Ace) down the block from my house is closing so some new developments can be built on the site, and they are letting everything go for 50% off. There's a ton of lighting stuff there, yesterday I got 2 2-lamp F20T12 Lithonia strips with magnetic ballasts, a pair of weird GE shatterproof ceiling fan lamps, and 2 white Zenith preheat PL13 jelly jar fixtures. What's interesting is that they appear to have been made in the late 2000s or even 2010s. I had seen them there before but just thought they were electronic ballast and didn't want to spend the $25 on one to find out.

Anyways, I'm pretty sad about the store closing as I grew up going there getting parts for all my little projects, but the company did say they do want to find some way to work out having a new store in the area because they were doing so well (their current store is in a decaying partially abandoned strip mall) so we'll see where that goes

Lighting up these Westy F34 CWXs in my louvered fixture for the night.

@Lumex120 - It's a shame to see smaller hardware stores like that close but at least it sounds like you got some decent lighting stuff there during the closing sale. IIRC F20 strips remained magnetic for quite a while. I bought F20 preheat strips from Lowe's as late as 2010 or so.
