Hey Ed.

I have three types of lighting in my shop. High pressure sodium, HID and T-8 fixtures.

In my opinion the 4' T-8 fixtures would be the best bang for the buck.

Available at wally world for under 15 bucks they are efficient and bright. I spaced them at 6' apart length and width and have plenty of light for most jobs. Bulbs are cheap if you buy them by the case.

You can hang them from the included chains or screw through the back.

Good luck,

Most of the cheaper light fixtures that come with hanging chains and cord and plug, are not designed to be hard mounted to a surface. They require spacing for cooling. Instructions probably say this somewhere, I know that similar chain hung lights from Lowes and HD do say that the chain must be use and to not hard mount.

It would be hard to imagine how an open air 76 watt fixture with an electronic ballast could overheat but I guess anything is possible with enough imagination.
