I've got a couple of dimmable T8 ballasts set aside let me see if I can find them.  The school I am at now finishing up in the Gym had dimmable ballasts in the classrooms, replaced with dimmable LED drivers, however I got there too late to get any of the old dimmable T8 ballasts before they were sent to the scrap yard Sad  If I come across anymore I'll hang onto a few.

Not today, but yesterday I re tested 4 cases of fluorescent tubes I have had for over a year (were all tested when I got them) to check they all still had vacuum, and they were all fine.

this week I've been doing a conversion over to 4100k from 3000k T8s at one of my church buildings.  Finished tonight.  Using mostly 32 Watt, but have a few 28 watt tubes in use in certain areas.  They don't do too bad really..

Friday I replaced a near EoL 150 HPS parking lot bulb.  Saturday, I did the same.  And some EoL T8s.

Finished up converting a set of normal mini lights to Aqua LED (started yesterday). When it was done it went in one of the trees Smiley
Also put up some other lights inside.

Upgrading from T8 to LED in another very old elementary school.  This one still has some of the old fixtures that are getting converted over....
Manufactured by Day-Brite lighting St. Louis, Missouri.  Most likely 1950s vintage, though the school is much older.  VERY cool!  I love these.

Nice old lights RyanF40T12 .. glad to see them converted to LED rather than trashed & replaced with some dull boring thing.
I see stuff like that and just think 'school light' .lol.

What did I do today?  I worked on some emergency lighting at one of my church buildings.  2 of the Dual Lite fixtures were original to when the building was built (1985) and had long since stopped working.  One still had the original battery pack, another had a replacement battery pack.  But the circuitry was fried.  Replaced with new LED fixtures.

Put a 2xF72T12 Slimline fixture above a desk/table I built last month for my father.

Hung up an F15T12 fixture to act as a reading light above my bed.

Also installed a home made bicycle headlight with components from the 70s (originally from a flashlight)
