Hello all. This is my first post to this forum, and I am a newbie, so please be gentle. :-)

My question is this. If I buy a set of worklights from Home Depot, and replace the halogen lights with quartz lights, could I attach a softbox to this without burning down anything?

Also, would an 80a filter be the correct filter to use to compensate for the quartz lights?

I am on a mico-shoe string budget, but any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
