Yep, that's why I asked - these T8 bulbs are the single most common fluorescent bulb produced in the world. They manufacture millions of them for office complexes. THink of every high rise office building with drop ceiling tile and those four foot fluorescent tubes (looking up, I see no less than a hundred such tubes withing my line of sight right now).

This DIY tip really is a godsend!

Tim, did you figure out the wiring? Email me at if you get stuck.
