Dr Z(with magnifying glass) analyzes bulbs while Mr Y..I'm not sure what he is doing.

Gadzooks! Dr Z is back from a long weekend of light bulb shenanigans with my friend Mr Y. Now for those of you who haven’t met Mr. Y..He is a bit of a party animal.. So he not only brought over some of his paparazzi friends to photograph my labratory and some of the things I have been working on.. Very Top Secret.  Anyways I have included a pic from our gathering last weekend(shown above) I’ll post more later.. Anyways! One of the questions that came up during the weekend was  concerning compact fluorescents and  their use on 3-way lamps. For some reason Mr. Y would snicker everytime “3-way” was said and distract me from my response concerning this very important question. 

Can I use a compact fluorescent light bulb on my 3-way lamp?”  To start with check the package to see if it is made for 3-way application.  If a regular CFL is use in a 3-way switch, it will work on the middle setting and it should not damage the bulb. The 3-way switch should not alter the performance of the bulb. Of course the best thing to do is always use the right bulb for the right application.

Until next time..Keep using those bulbs!
