Home-made UV Exposure Unit

If you're handy with a hammer, wrench or screwdriver there are times where you can make-it-yourself cheaper than buying. Here's the place to share information for mods and construction projects.

im working on building this. Did it slightly different. I put the ballast on the bottom so it would have a smaller footprint. It will also allow the wires to be ran underneath so there aren't any wires visible. I also go a different ballast. The ballast i go was a Fulham 10375 - WH5-120-L Fulham WorkHorse 5 Ballast. It was the only ballast i could find that could do 4 15 watt lamps. All in all this project cost me way more than i thought it would

I ordered 6 lamps so id have some spares. $45 after shipping
ballast $25
timer 25 (should have oredered online)
tombstones $20 (should have ordered online)
wood $10

still have to buy glass, rubber, hinges, spray adhesive.

A much cheaper option would have been to buy nail drying light off ebay. You'd get all the electronics for $30. I wasn't sure how well it would work though. Another option would be to buy an ebay unit. I saw some for about $120 i think. I thought building it would be cheaper (wasn't) and if parts go out on mine, i know where to get more.

In Mr. Kuhn's comment it tells me I don't have the required permissions to view the info... How do you go about getting the right permission please?

Thanks very much Jess I truly appreciate your help... hope I haven't offended anyone... Everything is just new and I feel a little lost. I just paid my membership dues and introduced myself in the Parlor. I didn't see anything as to how to put up a picture though... I will be glad to post a picture when I find out how to do that.

Thank you Sir... Best Joseph
