Received and unboxed my AEL 115 today, thankfully it arrived intact.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Collector of lights and anything else that interests me as long as I have space for that particular thing!

Today, I was working on making plug-in ignitors for 70w metal halide wall packs so that I can switch between metal halide/European external ignitor HPS and mercury vapor/European internal ignitor HPS very easily.

Today, I was finally able to operate a 60w SLI/H linear low pressure sodium fixture off American household mains although it does not have the ideal ballast.

Here is my posting of this beautiful low pressure sodium fixture lit up:

Just bought a AEL 115 200w HPS cobrahead today. Happy to have a 200w HPS light for the collection.

I have actually gotten several 200w HPS ballasts from roadkilled cobrahead lanterns. Plus I also got 2 roadkilled acorn post top lanterns that run 200w HPS lamps.

The replacement HO lampholder I ordered came in today so I chopped the curb find Lithonia F48HO strip from last week to 24" in order to run F24T12HO lamps instead.

There's only one word for what we did today and that is WOW.!!

We met up with the seller of the lamps we bought on eBay so that he didn't need to post them and risk them getting broken. :)
He then proceeded to rummage through the back of his van and hauled out lamp after lamp for us to have, including several rare lamps.  :love: :bulbman: :bulbman: :bulbman: :bulbman:
We half expected a very fast car with flashing lights on top chase us down the road.!!  :police:

Wow is an understatement, it's going to take us days to catalogue all the stuff we got..! I have no idea where we're sleeping tonight as the bed is now covered in lamps :lol:

Created some simple sequences to run my Halloween lights, and fired them up :)
There's one set that for some reason wasn't working. Its just too cold to go outside & try to figure out why (not to mention the roof is covered with snow & ice, so it really ain't safe to go up there...)
