There are two kinds of light  -  the glow that illuminates, and the glare that obscures.

The postman brought the five little neon indicator lamps that I bought on eBay, and there was a bonus lamp included, so I have six.  Grin

Next we will have to find some of the proper SCC holders so that we can light them.  Smiley

Plus we need to get the proper value of resistors so that they don't get POPPED  Cheesy

The ballast that we needed for our 180W SOX lamp arrived today, so we will be able to get it lit.  Smiley

At a future date we will have a mass lighting of all the standard wattages right from 18 through to 180, which will be 503 watts and just short of 80,000 lumens.!! Cool Cool Cool

It's going to be BRIGHT.!!  Cheesy

We have now got the lamp lit, pictures will follow later on...

Now where did I put my sunglasses.?  Cheesy

Did a discharge test on our Ansell emergency light fitting. I took my eye off the ball so not quite sure exactly how long it ran for, but it was at least 4 to 5 hours.

I opened my disconnected fluorescent wraparound fixture and now Iím waiting for my grounded power cord to arrive so I can wire it up. I also went to a parking lot to take photos of MV wallpacks.
