    Default Good source for Metal Halide system?

    I'm building an exposure unit based on Andymac's technique shown here.

    Anyone have any recommendations on where to buy a 1000 watt metal halide system, including reflector and ballast? I'm looking to spend no more than $200-250 on it.

    I'm looking for some sort of reptutable dealer online with reasonable shipping. Any suggestions? I'd love to give my business to a company that someone here is satisfied with. Thanks.

    I posted this before,

    There's a company here in Fresno that sells Industrial lamps for just about anything you think of that has to light up. Anyway the guy there gave me a catalog (like 530 pages) of just lamps. They have 1000 watt metal Halide
    lights. Which are really for lighting up parking lots. For about $170.00 dollar (at least the quote he gave me at the Fresno Location)
    These are brand new and should work fine.
    In the catalog there under page C-11 under Nitebrites Large Floodlight
    catalog # FLL
    The book has webpages and phone numbers on the back. I'm not sure if they sell to the public or if it's just wholesale.

    Thanks for the quick reply. While the price of those systems is attractive, I'd rather not deal with the electical work involved in integrating one of those lamps into my exposure unit.

    I was thinking of more a a hydroponics-type lamp, with an all-in-one ballast, reflector and lamp. Something I could plug into a timer and forget about.

    Anyone know of a reputable hydroponics-type reseller where I could find something like this, 1000-watt minumum?

    Look up hydroponic supplies on google. I bought mine from a hydroponics store in Pasadena for around $250.

    My retarded sister went to jail for growing bud. She was convinced that the coppers were watching her from across the street or one of her neighbors called on her.
    I asked her what she was using for a light source and she said that she and her boyfriend had stolen a mercury vapor from a streetlamp.
    I said that they probably found out because of her electricity consumption and she says "Oh they can do that"
    Whatdatard. Several months in jail the girl got.
