    Heatsink for WH7

    In your honest opinion do you feel a heatsink would benifit the ballast or not. If so where do you find one that long. Just fired mine up with new URI bulbs and I'm empressed, seems to be more intense over the lamps on the Icecap.

    Re: Heatsink for WH7

    I went to Home Depot and bought an eight foot section of aluminum/steel that they use for framing walls instead of 2 X 4's. Was about $2 and the WH7 Ballast fits right inside. Does alittle to get ride of the excess heat.
