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.

Got another cooper SSF240 and slapped a mark II advance ballast in it. 8) This will be the experiment fixture, next up to do would be preheat or something else off the wall. :D
