    Change comes with time

    I have found that nothing stays the same forever even includes light fixtures. I have 8' fluorescent 2 tube fixtures and have issues with 2 of them. One will not light up at all even after putting new tubes in. The other will only light up only one tube. I decided I would just replace the...

    My First Project Ever

    This was a learning piece for me. Given my limited selection of tools, I had to settle for using paint grade trim from Lowe's to dress it up. After a lot of sanding and conditioning it accepted the stain pretty well. You cannot tell from the pictures, but there are LED lights under the...

    Lights from Phil S

    I want you all to know I met Phil S last weekend and picked up some of those lights for the new shop. They are great. Easy to change a install. You folks better jump while you can. They would cost you way over $100.00 each to buy new. For the records I went to a local electrical supply...

    Shop Lights

    I found a good deal (I think) on fluorescent lights for my shop. They are four-tube, 4-foot long, the kind used in suspended ceilings in an office. The seller doesn't know if they are T12 or T8. Will I need to install four light tubes in each fixture? I think two would give me enough light for...

    Shop Ceiling & Lights, DC

    Took off some time from work after 80+ hour weeks to - relax? No - I had a shot at putting a ceiling in my shop. And while I would have liked to have been @ the beach, I decided I would much rather enjoy the comfort of having a ceiling in my shop to make it warmer. Had some 2 x 4 lay in...

    Outdoor work lights

    Now that it's starting to get dark earlier, I am missing working outside. I especially like to sand outside. I was wondering if anyone ever used those outdoor worklights. Northern Tool has some for pretty cheap. Are they any good, or too many shadows and not worth the trouble?

    And the Lights Came On

    About a month ago, I posted about finally getting my AC unit installed. Rather than climb up to it, I put it on one of those light remotes. I use the remote to control unit, cutting off breaker at the end of the day. Well, today, I noticed the little lights that my wife has in some bushes were...

    New Tread on T8 lights

    I just spent the last hour on the Web researching T8 ballast my guess is the FCC 47 cfr part 18 compliance, so who is the electronic's expert that can explain this. Is the shop a commercial environment?
