Assembled my new Lithonia F32T8 striplight I got today and lit up some F32T8 lamps from my collection for the first time in two years since my second F32T8 ballast died right after I got it (the first one is in my F17T8 American Fluorescent wraparound that I use every day).

Receiving updates on my 14 in GE slimline which amazon said was coming by 11/24/2021 and waiting for my 4 watt fixture from lightbulb depot to come in! And watching my new bulbs flicker.

He said Light Bulb Depot, though that would've been cool if Home Depot sold F4T5 lights. I'd imagine in the mid-2000s and before, they'd be magnetic pre-heat and after the mid-2000s, they'd be electronic ballasted.

Started the process of cleaning and sanding to repaint two fluorescent fixtures I found last year, a Sears 2xF20T12 preheat shoplight, and a National Lighting Supply 2xF36T12 slimline striplight.

Yup! I just realized I have basically no lamps for it...
Oh, so you have a fixture? Could you post some pictures? I've never heard of a 14" slimline lamp or fixture before.

It hasn't arrived, hopefully it has a bulb...
Personally, I'd rather it have a tube :lfl:  :P  :lol:

Can't have a bulb without a fixture...
Of course you can, I've hardly got any fixtures, but hundreds of lamps..! I just don't get why you call a tube a bulb, that's all  ;D

Bought what I thought was an NOS F15T12 preheat striplight at a surplus store, got home and opened it up for a closer inspection and discovered the bottom half of the metal channel is missing.  :curse: At least I got some sockets and a ballast but I'm still a bit annoyed because I had the perfect spot to install it.

Another LED died on me today. This time a Philips 11w (65w equivalent) R30 from August of 2017. Don't have any spare LED R30 lamps on me so we will be going to Home Depot to get some. For now, I installed an Ecosmart 15w (100w equivalent) A19 "snowcone" LED in its place.
