Replacing magnetic ballast with electronic?

I have a 1950s Dazor fluorescent magnifier with three F6T5 bulbs and three 6 watt magnetic ballasts.
Can I replace these with an electronic ballast(s)? What am I looking for in wattage, amps or whatever else
I need to know? There are close to a million wires in there.

Thanks,
Paul

Welcome to the forums.

Yes.... there is an electronic ballast that will replace the old magnetic one but it may be more effective to convert the light to LED and send all the ballasts packing.

Thanks, Pete. Sounds too easy. I'll read their instructions tomorrow.
