    I'm building a UV exposer unit for alt process and need to buy some BLB tubes.
    Has anyone bought from atlanta lite bulbs? They have the best price I could find on the net. Specificly is it possible to ship something as fragile as this undamaged? Is there another supplier people would recomend?

    I live also live in T-O. Not sure if I would chance shipping all the way from the States for an item like this. I bought my 'super actinics' from an aquarium supply house in B.C. - bulbs were packed well and not damaged (via CPC express mail no less).

    If you can deal with BLB as opposed to BL then your local Walmart will have F15T8BLB and F24T12BLB lamps.

    The only difference between BLB and BL is the BLB has a Woods Filter incorporated in the glass envelope. The Woods Filter cuts out much of the visible spectrum light emission. Both bulbs emit the same UVA.
