Converting T12 florescent light fixtures over to T8
I am finishing off a wood working shop that is 28' x 24' with 12' ceilings. I have several used florescent light fixtures in very good shape that hold two 4' bulbs. These are the older style T12 units as opposed to the newer T8. Curious if anyone has converted older T12 fixtures over to T8 and if so if they were happy and where they purchased the conversion parts? I am also curious if rumors I have heard about T12 bulbs being phased out similar to candescent bulbs being phased out is true or not.

Menards sells the ballast that will make the light fixtures work with the different bulb. I've changed some waterproof ones in our processing plant.
