    I am sure this has been discussed in the past but. When building or new shop or relamping your dark spots what lights would you use? I am talking brand new, relativly economical,. Has anybody seen or used LED?

    I like the new 8 foot florescent strip lights that use the 4ft T8 bulbs. I heard they stopped making the T12 . Something else that will help are the reflective hoods and paint the ceiling and walls bright white.

  3. I can't emphasize enough that a painted ceiling and walls makes a huge difference.

    I used 4 foot double lights in my new shop and have 8footers in my old shop...replacing bulbs and ballast are considerably more expensive. HRP
