Finally got the four 15w Sylvania Dulux CFL's that I bought online back on June 7th to ship. Had to complain to the seller a bit. Seller forgot to ship
the lamps. ::) Geez.

Unpacked a new cobra-head to the collection that I bought off another collector, but unfortunately the refractor was smashed in transit. Other than that no new lighting stuff.

Just got my four 15w Sylvania Dulux lamps, finally... Programmed Start as well which makes them far more interesting. However, they also give
off a yellowish hue to them, but they appear a little more bluish when they've warmed up completely. Under these ones though, it does seem as if
skin color looks a bit better compared to the Panasonic lamps. And when I screw them in, I'm able to see all the ends... so I'm able to monitor
any end blackening that may take place over the years. When screwed in completely, the Panasonic lamp endings faced upward, so it would've been
tougher to monitor the Panasonic CFL endings if I decided to keep using them above my bathroom mirror.
The Dulux lamps will be in use in my bathroom above the mirror for the time being. lol

 Yesterday I installed new LED fog lights in my 2003 Mercury Marauder as after 20+ years , the original halogen units were getting a bit tired . These were sold as "plug and play" , NOPE !!  While they bolted in place exactly as the originals , the wiring connectors are completely different !! The instructions want me to cut the original connector from my factory fog light harness and replace it with the ones supplied in the kit...Again , NOPE !!! I refuse to cut up the wiring in a 1 of 7,838 produced car !!! What I'm gonna do is replace the factory harness extensions with a modified set from a 2006-2011 Grand Marquis which has the same connection to the main harness but I'll substitute the correct connector to attach to the new LED for lights . Now , if I ever wish to put the car back completely stock I just have to swap in the original lights along with the original harness extensions .

 Today's project was the repair of a 150w LED temporary work light that the neighbor gave me . I was told it didn't work when he gave it to me . Turns out the light itself is fine but the wiring from the cord to the light and convienence outlet was completely fried ! :short: I'm gonna guess that someone used the convienence outlet to power a high amp device , cooking the small gauge wires .

My favourite is the ERLH, however they were too expensive! I like the erl6 too.

I have good and bad news.


Bad news, my green MH is dead and red mh is white, and I broke a reflector incandescent.
Good news, I got almost every hid ballast I need, even sox ballast, along with red and green MH replacements.

I parted out 3 Philips SGS201s today. The building where i work is getting renovated, and the lanterns had to be removed to make the facade ready for isolation.
So they also install new area lighting. Forgot the brand name, it's an italian manufacturer and the LEDs are 3000k which means the color temp will be warmer than before, which i definitely like.

The SGS201s were all still functional, though the glass fibre sticks out from the plastic EVERYWHERE. The manufacture date was 2002 and 2008. One had a made in Holland HPL-N 80, the other two had chinese manufactured ones. Spider debris EVERYWHERE. I wonder how long that Made in Holland one has been in there. It looks completely fine, but there hasn't been any dutch manufacture of those in decades i think.

Now there is one single SGS201 left on the building, on a part that will not be renovated. There's a nonzero chance that it will just stay there, greening out. There's only one hpl-n in stock at work, i kept the old ones. One of them has a very blackened arc tube, the other actually looks completely fine. The Made in Holland one is going home with me :)

The gear trays will be repurposed to drive the Eye/Iwasaki H50 clear mercury lamps because it has a tap for 50w and for 80w lamps. We use clear MV lamps to do stuff like show spectrum lines, invisible UV radiation spectrum lines with a diffraction grating, and for showing the difference between substitution and addition reactions with bromine and hexane/hexene.
We still have the Narva NF80 which runs completely fine, but if someone drops it - getting a replacement is impossible*, except for those H50s - so i have 2 in stock. Those will have to last the life time of the school...
*you can still get specialized Osram quarz burners, essentially a HPL-N without outer bulb, but those have the downside of emitting UVC light, which is an extremely bad idea in classroom settings. Aside from that, the bulb and holder cost north of 1000 euro and that's just totally ridiculous. A lot of profit is made over the backs of schools.

Today, I finally revived my 250w HID ballast. Yesterday, I was testing a HPS lamp, and it ran fine. But when I put the MH, nothing happened, even replacing it with the working HPS. Turns out the ignitor randomly died, and I replaced it with one I found in the trash.
