Just won a NOS GE 1000w /DX MV from eBay for $19.19 all in .

 WELL ! As it turns out , the seller screwed up on the initial shipping estimate which meant the shipping DOUBLED !!  >:(  To make it up to me , the seller sent me not 1 but TWO NOS 1kw /DX mercs along with a slightly used GE 1kw. Cleartop /DX lamp for the extra $15 !!!

 Photos soon !!!! :bulbman:

I scrapped a destroyed arcade machine and removed the lighting components. I saved a pair of small Robertson ballasts, a pair of starters, as well as sockets and a pair of tubes. Otherwise it was going to be dumped.

Built a new ballast board for our GEC 135/180W SOX leak transformer, and lit a GE (Thorn) 180W lamp on it  8) :lps:

Lit a GE HR175DX39 MV that I got yesterday. Nothing too special and made you know where, but it was cheap and it was new in box.

I saved an old Grandlite yardblaster from being tossed. It does not seem to be bad quality considering it is just a cheap fixture. I opened it up and there were SOOOOOOOOO many bugs inside it!

Free snacks!  ;D In all seriousness that's a pretty nice find. From what I know the ballasts they used are actually pretty decent.

I have a picture of it in my gallery. It's in mint condition, it just needs a new photocell and lamp and it needs a minor wipe down. The ballast inside this is huge considering it is an S55 ballast. The ballast manufacturer for the ballast inside this is IPP. It's most definitely not a cheap ballast!

Spent some time over the weekend taking and uploading pictures to my gallery.
One LED streetlight turned out to be a fork and blah blah blah thread derailed.
The rest of the pictures didn't do well so basically wasted a lot of time and now 9pm on Sunday realized I could have done much more productive things.
I did however receive a wealth of information from member takemorepills about traffic light problems so not a total waste of time afterall and I am greatful to him for providing the answers.

I have to ask, why do you call fluorescent tubes "bulbs"  ???

They're tubular, not bulbous, I've always wondered, over here they're always called tubes or lamps, never bulbs.
