There is a company in Randolph VT called LEDdynamics that make LED bulbs for your fluoresce light fixtures.
The best part of this there made in the USA not China. I have them in my shop and love them.

I looked at the web site and was wondering which ones you purchased. Also you have to call for pricing so would you be willing to share the per tube price?

Thanks

LED bulbs dont use ballast


In woodworking there is always more then one way to accomplish something.

Home Depot has both T12 and T8 LED bulbs that go into Florescent fixtures without modifying the fixture. Just plug 'em in and turn 'em on. They do require that the fixture has an INSTANT START ballast however. They are about $7.00 each. Haven't tried them yet myself.

We should be careful to get out of an experience only the wisdom that is in it and stop there lest we be like the cat that sits down on a hot stove lid. She will never sit down on a hot stove lid again and that is well but also she will never sit down on a cold one anymore. - Mark Twain

Modify and never need balast and buy bulbs from earth led for 7 dollars. The bulbs have dc powersupply built in only need AC input on one side of bulb other end no connection. Watch utube videos on modification.
