I want this basically:
Lighting F/X Box

I just don't wanna pay that much for it. Is there any other way to accomplish what this box does for cheaper? I don't want a "home depot" flicker bulb, its not powerful enough. What I want to be able to do is plug in my lamp into something with my regular 40-60 watt bulb and have it flash like my room is haunted. Oh and I dont care if it flashes to music. It can flash to whatever the hell it wants to for all I care

Any advice?

I run two 50 watt bulbs off one FS-5 without a problem, just remember the lifespan of the starters are about a month running 4 or 5 hours a day (with the wattage I'm useing) Also thats why it flickers because it won't start..:)

Ok, I bought all the parts I needed from that youb build it website. I followed the instructions and it doesnt work. My light bulb just lights up, but doesnt flash.
I plugged in my lamp to the extension chord I modified. Just an FYI, which I think is the right way to do it?


Anyone else with this experience?
