Hi , I can pick up a flourescent black light bulb for about $15, do these
produce enough UV to erase PIC's, thanks in advance,

Most UV erasers use 254nm light from a low pressure mercury discharge. This
is harmful to eyes and skin. Black light bulbs generate longer wavelenghts
which are less harmful but also have lower energies and will probably be
less efficient for erasing eproms.

"Black light" bulbs produce UV in the wrong wavelength. Good thing,
too... If they didn't, you'd go blind looking at them.
Break down and spend $40 for a Datarase-II eraser from Digi-Key.
