Somehow, I would expect that the thriving "hydroponics" industry near Nanaimo would provide you with excellent sources of UV illumination. If I assume correctly that you are actually on Gabriola Island, you may have neighbours who can help you with that.
Are there any police auctions coming up in the near future ?
Have you spoken about this with Lillian Sly (sly here on APUG)? She does wonderful Alt Process work in the Nanaimo area.
