The Sketchiest Way to Use CFLs « on: January 30, 2020, 06:29:06 PM » Author: Mr. Orthosilicate
I found this video of a rather bad homemade CFL setup. The worst part is that he tried to cover the live parts, but didnít due so effectively. If you donít mind getting electrocuted, itís not terribly bad. Enjoy the redneck engineering at its finest: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jwl_k5Ih1YE
