    I believe in the back of either a bostick and Sullivan book or in Dan Burkholder's book there's an excellent diagram for building one. I replicated it in Mexico City very inexpensively since my buddy and I new a good carpenter who did it for cheap. We found the bulbs which were GE something or other easy to find and cheaper than the book stated.

    I'll see if I can find what book I'm thinking of.

    It's in the book "The New Platinum Print" by Sullivan & Weese. I think it's out of print.

    TL tubes without ballast? Such does not exist.


    (The only fluorescant lamps that do not need a ballast (as it is built into the lamps) are the compact types. But these are not offered as UV version to my knowledge.)

    I don't know, the tubes themselves are from Philips marked TL 20W/5. I don't know, perhaps the armature has the ballast inside it but it has been so long ago I build it that I don't remember it if it had. I know that it was the cheapest way to get UV light were I live as the whole setup was about 40 euro to build (with 2 tubes).
    Sure, I could give you a boring explanation who I really am but I rather let the Origami do the talking.
