    I want to sell VFT'S in my store and found some 74" tall rack lighting systems (on ebay)

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....84&rd=1

    with adjustable lamps; but they are only two 48 inch flourescent fixtures per rack. I think I can adjust them as close as I want but is two 20 watt lamps enough even if I can get them very close?

    At home I use four, (two soft white and a cool white and a grow light).

    I don't want to drop almost $200.00 for something that will be useless. I don't want to build one either; don't have the time.

    If anyone can suggest a better system, I'm all ears.

    I got an e-mail responce to the lighting question on ebay from the seller.

    He says it will do just fine; but. . . he is the seller so I still don't know if I will order.

    Lowes has a metal 5 tier shelf that a few members on here use including me. It is 74" high, 48" long, and 18" wide. I think is it around $80. I use two 48" shop lights per self and it works great. I would make an awesome display in a store. I could send you some pictures if you want.

    Thanks for the response,

    Unfortunately, I don't have a Lowe's here (yet).

    Home Depot, perhaps?

    Did you have to rig the lighting yourself?

    I am sure Home Depot has it also. For the lighting you just use the 48" shoplights that hold 2 bulbs. Just use a piece of chain and hang 2 fixtures under each shelf. It is very easy.
