    Mike, make sure you can return it. The fan I bought--from Radio Shack--was supposed to be able to handle the load, but it caught on fire and burned instead and it was ~$20 if I remember correctly. Right now my set-up works great with the hole and the desk fan--if I'm not printing I can use it on my desk and since I already had it, it was free!

    Im inspired jeremy.
    I just read through this whole thread and the Ballast and bipins collecting dust in a box are going to get put to use. I still need two more ballast and 8 bi pins but can likely find those here in town.

    whered you buy the BL bulbs at? I found 24"BLB bulbs at Home Depot and can purchase them locally but from all the articles (skings and such) the BL ones seem a better way to go.

    Keep an eye out for spring-loaded bipin sockets. They are really cool for hanging fixtures when you're on a ladder (doesn't apply here). I think they might not be as critical for alignment as the twist-in ones. I had never seen spring loaded bi-pin sockets until recently, only the single pin ones.

    I just built one of these from the Edwards ubildit plans. I purchased my 24"BL bulbs from Grainger. I just looked at the website (www.grainger.com) & they have 2 branches in Austin. I bought my little fan there too. (as well as the ballasts & lampholders, but you already have those)

    Ditto, and since they are located in Austin you can beat the shipping cost for 24" long glass bulbs!

    Yippee!!!!!

    The light box is finished, except for the fan, but it lights up a 3 car garage with light to spare.

    BTW Jeremy, installed the fan and just as you said....Poof!! gone, so will have to locate something that can handle the load. Don't believe what the guys at RS tell you. Still very happy with the light, 12 BLB bulbs - 24 inch, using electronic ballast which seems to give really good output. Now waiting for the order from B&S to come in (LiPld for Zia's and a Van Dyke kit !!)

    Congrats Mike and I told you so

    You can do what I did and get a little desk fan to blow into there, just widen the hole a little bit.
