Re: LED Shop Lighting

RN-- "We" have seen the setup at HD, but have not played with it, yet. Thank you for reminding "us." I imagine I will receive instructions to check it out soon from SWMBO. Of course, anything I determine about what looks the best will not be the thing that actually, really looks the best. And, in fa...

Bill--

IF they last that long!

I'm thinking I'll see if they have a cooler product, something like 5000k or more.

Re: LED Shop Lighting

All--

Here is a government (US DOE) website that allows one to select and compare from a database of 71,957 products. I'm playing with it, but don't know what to compare my light with. :(

Take a look if you are interested and tell me what you think.

Bill and Pete and All--

I took a closer look at the test tube I bought. Here are some specs, one of which might be useful in comparison to other products; lumens per watt: 91.1.

Re: LED Shop Lighting

Pete and Bill and All-- Pete , I will read your link and thread. Thank you. I bought a test tube, pictured below, from Home Depot: $89.99. I'll stick it up in the garage and see what I think. I'm pretty sure it may not be the final product, especially given the resources provided hereon. But, it wil...

Re: LED Shop Lighting

All-- My installation will be from scratch; I don't have existing fluorescent tube fixtures. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I know nothing (actually, now I know NEXT to nothing about LED tube lights, which is a little better than nothing) about LED tube lights. Of course, I looked online. I coun...

RN and Bill--

The house is 100% LED. The garage will be, as well. I'll research LED tube lights. (I had planned to make the garage and shop can-light LED.)

Re: LED Shop Lighting

All-- I've read the whole thread. Very informative. (My daughter is a biologist. She has done things to mice that one should not speak of. On the other hand, she tells me that if you are a diseased or sick mouse, science can cure you. I suppose there is good and bad in everything. Still, on balance,...

Re: OT: Building in isolated location

All-- Ok . . . it is really going slow! We are so far out in the backwoods that it is difficult to get workers. Some days, only the builder is on site. Other days, he might have three workers show up. Everyone has to drive 84 miles, ONE WAY, to get to the site. The bank is inspecting today so we can...

Thank you. The lumber for the diagonals is one of the stacks in the garage. It will be braced as you said some time this winter.

Eventually, after I spray foam the ceiling and walls, I will put OSB on the walls. THAT should help with the bracing, too.
