OT: t-8 or t-12

Jack Guzman from Maine
I have a two bulb 4' t-12 flourescent fixture over my bandsaw. One of the bulbs burned out and I don't have any replacements but I do have some t-8 bulbs so I put one in. Surprising me it worked fine. I don't understand how this works. When you buy a replacement ballast they specify either t-8 or t-12. I always assumed it made a difference and they weren't interchangeable. I guess I was wrong.---Jack
