Cheap DJ lighting controllers have several functions built in, I believe chase is one of them.  Otherwise rent a flicker box from a lighting grip rental.

You can get them and almost anything else mechanical, electrical, etc. from places like McMasterCarr or MSC.  Delivered to your door.

ACF-50 $18+ for an aerosol can on Amazon.  Not in my budget.

In Topic: Cheapest Method For LOTS of Light?

Possibly, although many bulbs to fit that have a CRI of about 60 (that is, practically unusable except for special effects) and they will be magnetic ballast and flickery.

 

Better bulbs are possibly available but would cost half as much again.

 

Phil is correct, manufacturer's website states transformer ballast.

....and no barn doors, lenses or any type of rudimentary focusing mechanism.  These are more aptly called MBLs, Make Believe Lights.

In theory the BBs fill the space between the hex head of the bolt and the interior of the tube, wedging the bolt in place so you can remove the nut.
