Westinghouse Blacklighter
OV-25 with a 400w mercury vapor black light lamp. Not as impressive as I thought it would be but I always wanted to try this. The refractor causes too much scatter and the overall output doesn't even appear to be as good as a 2x40w fluorescent striplight with BLB tubes. Plus it gets extremely hot. But I still think it would look cool to use these on a totally dark street, making just the lines on the pavement glow.

Nice! Too bad about the non-effectiveness. I think the problem is the refractor. The glass is absorbing most of the light. Did you try it with no refractor?

Yeah, you can see the refractor glowing quite a bit.A Wood's glass refractor would be a lot better but would look pretty strange lol and I doubt such a thing was ever made.
