You're probably just attuned to it. I can hear subtle little things that
nobody else can too, but fortunately my Super Cheapass Lowball 2000 Ultra
Crappy SuX shop lights aren't on the list. I like'em fine, which is good,
'cause that's all I could afford after my little stupid electrical mishap
where I let the smoke out of every single one of my lights.

My lights put out a near defeaning hum, like the hum of a million
locusts swarming all over my body. I was plagued by this whenever
I was in the basement using those God forsaken lights. I thought it
would drive me mad, in fact. Then I turned off all the fluorescents
and went outside and the hum was still there, so I guess its not the
lights at all !
The software said it ran under Windows 98/NT/2000, or better.
So I installed it on Linux...
I intended to say, these are the cheapest shop lights I could buy--from Sears
probably ten years ago. Less than $7.00 including two tubes. When they are all
on I can just barely hear a faint hum. Turn off one bank and it is quiet. I'm
hoping that they don't deteriorate over time.
Keith, I think being in your shop would be similar to the light I saw when I
shorted the 3-phase circuit to ground when checking breaker numbers. After two
weeks the thumb doesn't have any open cracks now, and the tan oval after-image
disappeared in a couple of hours!
If the "General green" soaks up too much light, I have 5 outlets designated for
lights, but unused, where I felt I didn't need more light.
