mission code named "pain in the arse" begins tonight. « on: August 11, 2019, 01:01:20 PM » Author: HomeBrewLamps
gonna save:

6 SYLVANIA GTE F40 Daylight lamps
3 WESTINGHOUSE F40 Cool white Blackenders
8 PGT17 tubes i think both 6 foot and 8 foot. or whatever the powergroove t17 equivalent is...
1 or 2 construction flashers.


I may or may not also make a side stop to save a Westinghouse econowatt T17 retrofit lamp (one of those T12 lamps with T17 mogul bipin base)

all on a bicycle. without a trailer. and the power grooves are 10 miles away lol. the daylights and westy's are closer (3 miles) but hauling any bundle of tubes farther than 50 feet is a pain in the butt lol.

i will do it though, because if I dont they'll certainly be gone for good. probably end up smashed by some dumb kid with a rock.

Good luck man !!! Remember to take tape to bundle them with . And maybe some form of padding so one end can possibly rest on the handlebars.

Good luck! I saved about 10 F40s this way from an abandoned house.

I completed it partially last night and today.... All that's left is the power grooves... Which are the biggest trophy of all for this particular mission... Although I think I'll add a couple high bay lights to this particular mission... I believe theyre 50s or 60s vintage... They're must saves!
