I hope this doesn't led to a discussion on the difference between lumens and candlepower. (I couldn't resist a pun either)

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

The nice thing about leds is they don't shadow.

So those that have always been afraid of their own shadow will no longer live in fear?
Hmmm, I know a couple of people that would benefit.

I have replaced all the T-8 fluorescent tubes in my shop with these from Hyperikon.

They are less expensive than those I found at the local home improvement store. You have to rewire the fixtures, but that takes about 5 minutes with the enclosed instructions.

The only thing I am concerned about, but not yet sure about, is the issue of the power converter built into the LED bulb. That was a serious flaw in the curly bulbs, particularly the cheaper ones. The curly bulbs were good far beyond the lifespan of the power converter. We will see how this works out, but I think the fact it is solid state and has no arc to produce light means it is running cooler. That is always good for solid state power supplies.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

Could you provide a link to the HD fixtures you like? I assume you're referring to the ones identified as "linkable". There are quite a few available from them.

That's not a bad deal Chas and they are only slightly more on Amazon Canada https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00...-20&pldnSite=1 It's interesting that they can be run with the T8 ballast and input an extra 4 watts that way or as you say they can be bypassed. The 2200 lumens is fairly bright. I had a chance to check out some led fixtures recently where someone I know was switching out his T8s and the lights were bright and the light quality was excellent. That was all something that was being discussed about the new leds a few years ago when this subject first came up was would they be bright enough but that's not an issue any more. They are as bright or brighter.
