I just had a 20 inch (or so) light fixture go bad. I'd gotten it free,
taking apart some equipment in about 1995, and used it for many years to
light the hall of my trailer. Went to Walmart, and bought something similar
for under ten bucks. Unless this is really essential to get the same light
going again, I'd give a serious look at replacement.
Of course, you know your situation better than I.

I have an older 18" fluorescent lamp that takes a 15WT8 bulb. As of this
morning, it no marcha. I suspect the starter switch, which is your glass-
tube type and is pretty black inside.
The problem is, I can't find any 15W starter switches at any location close
to me. I can, however, cheaply and easily find a white, cylindrical starter
switch that says, "13w, 30w, 40w" on it.
Can I use this "13w, 30w, 40w" switch with my 15w lamp?
