    Hi all,
    I found LED 48" shop lights on sale at COSTCO this past weekend priced at $20.00 each. They are rated at 4000 lumens each. I bought four of them and replaced my old fluorescent light fixtures. Wow! What a difference! They are so bright! I just thought I would share.

    Did the replacement in four lamp fixtures and only used Two of the Led 4 foot. Had to rewire the fixture get rid of the ballast and direct wire. Very simple. Got them off Ebay. So don't throw the old fixtures away can get the bulb's and use your old fixtures. Yea they give off a lot more light than the old fluorescent.

    They make bulbs that swap into light. No need to rewire light

    Me too, but when I do burn 'em up, I think I'm going the LED route.

    These are not hard wired. They just plug into a receptacle. I do have the old style ablove my bench, so I will save the old tubes as replacements.
