Default Re: Inverter tester using old CFL

I just used this trick to great success and wanted to say that I came up with an easy way to separate the plastic housing on the base of the bulb. I didn't have a hacksaw handy so I put the lower half of the bulb in a vise and tightened it slowly, crushing the lower housing causing the upper part to pop free. I suppose there might be a chance of shattering the bulb this way, but both the ones I did this too popped free easily without having to apply too much pressure.
