Yesterday I got four packages of 50 incandescent PR flashlight bulbs for cheap, and today I got a nice incandescent bulb from a microwave oven.

Uploaded pictures of the four SOX-E ballast sets we recently got from John (thorncollector). This now completes our set of all the SOX and SOX-E lamps & gear sets, with the exception of the very early tin-oxide coated SOX lamps. Never seen any of those for sale, so whether we will ever get any is not known, but there's always hope  8)  :lps:

Edit: Just lit our 131W SOX-E lamp on its correct gear for the first time  :lps: 8)

I built a 50 watt HPS flood light which I still need to install the reflector and photocell. I have progress photos in my gallery.

I decided to stick my Sylvania 700W MV lamp in my Holophane Lobay. It looks really weird.

Photos later when I get a chance to light them all up  ;D

Heh, I guess a 175w lamp would be a better for for it. Anyway I received my case of Sylvania Unalux HPS lamps so naturally I lit one up in one of my area lights.

I'm going to try and get one of those cases of Unaluxes too. Can't order them for a few more days until I get some extra cash, and there's only 2 left so I'm really hoping I'll be able to get one. Worst comes to worst I can't imagine everyone here who got a case is going to want all 10.

Found some Philips CDM330 Allstart lamps at the Value Village. I've actually considered paying full eBay prices for one so these were a good find. Anyway I lit up one in my B2255 and it looks quite nice.

Went through Old Town Spring and had a 2007 throwback. HPS and MV streetlights and area lights, along with MH gas station lights. It’s just as I remember it!   :D
