    FOBA Tube Set

    Nearly a decade ago I bought ONE case of FOBA tubes

    LN $20 not for sale

    I should have pushed the seller for the second case, as at the last moment he decided to keep case 2, my bad

    I have enough to make a platform

    Very expensive new

    I hope to get it set up this decade

    Winter is coming

    I have (maybe) half of this olde vintage stuff in my studio. Yep Long Cold Winter ahead I'm expecting. FOBA BABY FOBA! Proceed

    BTW you can infinitely extend FOBA Combitubes onto FOBA tripod legs. Go as tall as you care to. I have three C40 tripods (Norma catalog 8x10 tripod) and an ALFAO tripod that was over two Grand at B&H. Happy Happy to pay $210 on Ebay

    Ukraine produced extremelly good tungsten bulbs, a lot of wolframium, long resource.
    Perhaps not any more.
    And these round Foba reflectors are gems, very even illumination if you are in to it.

    Just for us native English speakers: "wolframium" = tungsten.
