DIY Old School Fluorescent Custom Suggestions
How would you make a fixture to combine the inner workings from 3 old fluorescent fixtures sized for 15 watt, 18", T8 bulbs (You know, the fixtures that are made for 10 gallon aquariums.)?
I want to make a fixture for a 29 gallon tank, using these old parts, as they work and there is no reason to throw them away. Also, I'm not looking to spend money on a new fixture (even though LED is the new thing).
Basically, I want to remove the electronic parts (the ballasts and what not) from the old fixtures and make a new fixture to house the old fixture's electrical parts. The end result would be one fixture that could run 3 light bulbs. It would be great if they all connected to one cord, but I'd be cool with 3 cords coming out of the fixture.
I've replaced a ballast once before, but beyond that I don't know much abut electrics.
