    Hi everyone,

    This problem seems to discuss a lot... but no limit. I have two choices right now, Canadian Tire's.

    48" Black Light Tube 40W, $25/b and
    Black Compact 13W bulb, standard screw, $7/b

    I just contact 8x10 maximum size, so.... what is economic choice for me? I think I can make a box with 6-9 bulbs of BC instead of a rank of long tubes (except I am going to contact 24"x36" or bigger sizes)

    By 13W, I don't know how long I have to wait for a 8x10 cyanotype sheet completed.

    Sorry, I don't want to get 1000W metal halid bulbs, tubes...just economic!!!
