Power Groove Tubes « on: January 11, 2019, 04:17:45 PM » Author: mobilite
Found a case of brand new 72" G.E. tubes. Cool white, case of 8 .
F72PG17-CW. Price tag of $3.each. I probably should bring them home, but my PG 17's are all 96".

If I saw F72PG's for that price, I'd buy some right then & there!
(even though I don't have a fixture for them)

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Ya, im considering going back tomorrow and getting them. If i were to build a fixture, should i try to find 8'ho ballasts or VHO ballast? What do you think.

I'd try to find a VHO ballast, but HO ballasts are allot easier to come by. Either one will work just fine Smiley
You could build a fixture out of sheetmetal, but I'd say try to find a used 8' HO/VHO fixture & cut it down - that's allot easier! (and will likely have a ballast already) ... plus old used fixtures can be gotten cheap - keep checking craigslist(or an equivalent in your area), and ofcourse the ReStore
