I did a neon sign workshop the other weekend. I hadn't left the country in two years, not that I really go on holiday, but I was in need to doing something a little different. The opportunity to get involved in a day course with http://www.neonworkshops.com/ came up, and I took it. I tinkered around on the torches while this was made for me in about 15 minutes. I think I could have cracked the technique, but it would have probably taken me a couple hours to produce lettering, and not as well as was done by the professional. This simple video shows the wiring process. I will in the next couple week build a Perspex box for this. In the final wiring, it is important to keep the two cords which run from the transformer separate as contact could cause them to melt together.
