How do i rebuild a flouro fixture?.

Recommended Posts

I've got an old 4 foot flouro fixture that was found in a closet in an old rental house. Its an old one that weighs a ton. I want to shorten it to a 2 footer but aint sure about internals. This one has a big heavy ballast type thing that i aint seen in other flouros.

So now i'm just wondering if anyone has any knowlege of flouro fixtures or can point me in the direction of some pics it would be much appreciated.

I think all i need is a basic wiring knowledge to see if i need this big heavy black box.

It would be an old 40 watt fitting, hence 40watt ballast, cant use with 18 or 20 watt (2 foot) tubes. (probally fucked and dangerous) :o

hope this helps, but dont play with old fittings, your input here is to valuable :o

7x plug-tops (male) and 1x 8gang powerboard from any electrical wholesaler or maybe Bunnings for about $20.

p.s. are you using tri-phospor tubes ($3 ea)

an yes fluros can do the job, but I prefer my 600w hps, buds like possum tails, brushed tailed that is. :o
