Make Your Fused Tube Work Again

Best way to use the old, fused tubes.

There is another way to put to use the old tubes which are not working any longer. You can also make use of a Blackened tube light or an old fused light.

Materials needed:-

1)      Fused tube (4’)

2)      New starter

3)      Diodes 4 no’s (# 4007)

4)      Fan rester

5)      3 meters of plastic wire

6)      A two pin plug

7)      Insulation tape

Here the way to connect

A)    Join positive ends of two diodes (+) and twist them together ( set one)

B)     Join negative ends of two other diodes (-) and twist them together( set two)

C)    Now join one positive end of set one and one negative end of set two & twist them together.

D)    Continue joining the balance two ends of set one & set two, – one positive & one negative ends & twist them together.

            This completed set of diodes forms a rhombus and the circuit shall be completed as shown in the diagram.

Take adequate caution to insulate the joints with an insulation tape.

At the beginning when this is connected to the power source the Fan rester may give some fumes but after a little time this will stop. Do not be taken aback.

Take some more care to see that this hole circuit be concealed into a box type so that it is not exposed & be meddled by any body.

    i am a fused bulb

    how will you

    diffuse me

    i’m all in mercury

    which none can see
    my mind
    my memory
    is exquisite poetry
    which you all read
    it comes from
    out of a fused bulb like me
    yes they call it poetry

    Good thought.

    I want to try this circuit,
    Can you tell me the function of this FAN RESTER ( Is it Fan regulator – If yes is it electronic one )and what should be the setting on it.

    Please reply.
