Could I please get some opinions on what brand of lights to use (without breaking the bank) to determine different types of tagging?
Thanks

Has been on this forum before. Use the "search" function above to see what we all think about these lights.
Personally I use a small portable one from http://uvtools.com and a bigger, plug in 18 watt job from the same place. Both of these came with short- and long wave light bulbs. The portable uvtools unit is the cheapest available and is the same unit sold by Amos.

Don't forget pick up a pair of UV blocking glasses. Retina burns are no fun.

This is their US site....not too expensive for a dual UV lamp - hope this helps you

This is a Canadian stamp Store in Montreal......decent prices for portable units and they explain the usage...!

Renden, that is not correct. The website is the one I gave above, http://uvtools.com . All the others, including Amos, Lighthouse etc sell the same unit but for up to 20, 30 dollars more.

Thanks all for the input.
I did try a search prior to the post but must have entered something incorrectly as it yielded nothing of value. Oh well - at least the request was on the correct forum this time and did not need to be moved by a moderator. New light is on the way and maybe I can finally get to the bottom of the Mexico Export series.

Agree with you Peter, re: US site and sorry for the misinformation on the US side, and I never ordered stuff from the US. Rene
