i had a slew of t-12 fixtures i got on sale years ago
put 12 of them up in my spray booth
(so i don’t have to bend over and move around
to see the actual work surface)
got a bunch of t-12 tubes for them
but only a few worked the rest flikered or didn’t light at all
returned them and got other boxes
(one turned out to be some guys old ones
he had taken back and got his money back
as if they were new in the same box)

well it turns out the ballasts were no good in my fixtures
and they don’t even sell them on ballast sites either
(cheap stuff works that way)
so now i am looking for enough money to get the t-8 fixtures
as i have 24 brand new t-8 tubes

i will ‘watch’ this page
for more info on this too

thanks lee for this post
